My octopus had the entrails removed, as well as the bone (for those with entrails, Sylvia explains HERE how to clean it), so I boiled it in the "court-buillon" for 40-60 minutes on low heat - see ABC seafood written by Radu Popovici). It is boiled when the fork enters it easily. (I portioned the octopus, I didn't put the whole one in the pot)

The court-bouillon is prepared from 1-2 onions (I cut them into 4), 2 carrots (also cut bigger), celery, salt, peppercorns ... (see the ingredients section).

I finely chopped half an onion, half a fennel, 3 cloves of garlic and put them to harden in a nut of butter. While they were browning, I sliced ​​the octopus' arms and added them to the pan, stirring over high heat. Season with salt and pepper (I added a sprig of thyme and a little chili). Then I added a glass of dry white wine and let it boil for another 5 minutes on low heat.

Now I am preparing the vegetable sauce .... I chose a Portuguese style sauce from the book The Complete Art of Cooking!

I put the onion, fennel and garlic to harden, over high heat, after 3-4 minutes I added the wine, sauce and spices, I left them on normal heat for 5 minutes. Then I added the octopus, stirring for another 5 minutes. At the end I put the lemon and the spoon of honey.

I had the garnish of boiled rice.

From time to time you need a treat like spicy chicken breast, and if it can be made at home, in less than 40 minutes it is even better. The chicken breast prepared in this way is tender on the inside and crispy on the outside, has a spicy and aromatic taste and goes great with any garnish or sauce.

  1. There are 2 methods of preparation:
  2. -in the oven
  3. -on the stove.
  4. In the oven (the version I made:
  5. Place the cleaned and well-washed seafood in the tray (they may also have different impurities), put the grated or diced tomatoes on top (scalded beforehand and peeled), sliced ​​garlic, spices, oil and wine and put in the oven over high heat for 15-20 minutes. Depending on how big the prawns are, check after 15 minutes if they are well done.
  6. Remove the tray from the oven, sprinkle with greens, cover and let it sit for 10-15 minutes, then serve.
  7. On the stove, in the pan or frying pan:
  8. Put the oil and the grated tomatoes in the pan, simmer for a few minutes until soft, add the seafood, spices, wine and sliced ​​garlic and let it simmer for 10 minutes. Taste a prawn and leave for another 3-4 minutes if they are not well done.
  9. Be careful: The seafood does not leave much on the fire, because it hardens and becomes hard, like rubber. It is best to check.
