🐙 Today I have prepared for you a traditional Murcian dish that uses the king of the sea as the protagonist.
El roasted octopus It is one of those preparations with which you will not leave anyone indifferent due to its great flavor and such tender meat (if it is prepared well!). In addition, it is a very healthy product that has very low levels of fat, so it is perfect to take care of the line this summer 😁
We clean the suction cups well with plenty of water, making sure that they do not have any dirt left. The first thing we will do is scare the octopus. How do we do this and what is it for? Scaring the octopus helps us to make it more tender and not lose the skin when cooking it.
- The next step will be to take the octopus by the head and submerge it three times in boiling water.
- We place it on our well stretched baking tray.
- We add 1 glass of beer and 1 glass of water and season the potatoes with black pepper and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
We cover the tray with aluminum foil and the iWe introduce the octopus in the oven at 160 degrees for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
To make sure that the octopus is tender, we prick it with a toothpick, observing that it is inserted almost without exerting pressure. If this is so, we have it ready.
A magnificent recipe with which we can fill the table in our celebrations.
