    That will work well with pasta.

    Superb!

    We get them at the seafood markets here. I do Teriyaki baby Octopus sometimes using a variation of this recipe or sometimes Pulpo à la feria ;)

    Thats a fairly generic treatment of the recipe, but with a few more things you can make it a great one :)

    Fresh Galangal, Lemongrass, Kaffir Lime Leaves & juice, Coriander stems, Shrimp Paste, Palm Sugar, etc, etc.

    Marinade the whole show for 24hrs prior to cooking it also.

    I'm only having a lend. ;)
    I work for a Japanese company and up until a few years ago had never had raw seafood. My boss said he was the same for years and always ordered something cooked from a menu. Before that he would joke with them all by tossing the chef a box of matches :LOL:

    I have some with Fetucchine, and worked quite well. Even, just the sauce will dress some pasta quite well. Next time I will probably fill the pot to make more sauce and freeze it for future dishes like pasta, rice etc :)

    I will keep teriyaki in mind for next time, sounds really good. Making a pulpo a la feria would be great if I found a large octopus or convince a friend to spearfish one or two for me. I don't think Hobart is great for easily getting seafood (and I love FishMarkets, for buying but also just for walking through and see all these beauties)
    Here I made a quite similar to 'Sauce Américaine' with a bit of red wine (that's why is is darker)

    Sorry mate, they have gone :sorry::happy:

    I'm a lazy city dweller who likes to support his outrageously expensive fish mongers :(
