How to make Octopus Fricassee

  • Start by cooking the octopus in a pressure cooker, add a garlic clove, a bay leaf and a pinch of salt. After the pressure cooker starts whistling, you should let the octopus cook for another 20 minutes. When the octopus is cooked, cut it in pieces and leave it on the side.
  • Put a chopped onion, 2 garlic cloves and olive oil in a pan and braise them a little.
  • Then, add the octopus’ pieces, a small amount of the water where you cooked the octopus and the chicken stock cube.
