How to Make How to Boil a Whole Raw Octopus!

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 18 steps you must follow to make How to Boil a Whole Raw Octopus! in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • There are different kinds of octopus, but I'm not sure if this is a madako type... I'm a Hakotade native, which is prominent for squid, so I'm not too sure about octopus varieties.
  • Step 2
  • This is a photo of the suckers. Unnecessary?
  • Step 3
  • If you buy an octopus from a fishmonger, the insides of the head, the eyes and the beak will most likely be removed.
  • Step 4
  • Place the octopus on a sieve, add lots of salt and rub in with both hands to clean. Enjoy the feeling of the suckers sticking to your hands!
  • Step 5
  • Apparently fishermen put an octopus in a plastic bag with salt, and spin it for 45 minutes in a washing machine. Think of emulating that as you rub that beast very, very well.
  • Step 6
  • When it's no longer slimy, rinse well in water.
  • Step 7
  • I heard that the octopus becomes tender if you bash with a daikon radish so I tried it out, but there wasn't a lot of difference between an un-bashed tentacle. In any case, the octopus did becomes somewhat tender.
  • Step 8
  • A sushi chef told me that if you boil octopus with bancha green tea, it adds color, the skin doesn't peel off easily, and that the texture of the flesh is improved, so I tried out the tip.
  • Step 9
  • The key to making the legs roll up nicely is to submerge in the boiling water tentacle first, take out, putting back in, and repeating several times.
  • Step 10
  • When the tentacles have rolled up cutely, put the whole thing in the boiling water.
  • Step 11
  • You can adjust the boiling time, but if you boil it for too long it will become tough. I boiled a 1.2 kg octopus for about 5 minutes.
  • Step 12
  • Take it out when it's boiled, place in a sieve and cool under running water.
  • Step 13
  • Cool down quickly in ice water, until it's no longer warm when you touch it.
  • Step 14
  • Chop off the tentacles one by one.
  • Step 15
  • The head. The mouth is cute!
  • Step 16
  • After a 5 minute boil, the texture is like this. I think it's perfect for sashimi or carpaccio.
  • Step 17
  • As long as you rub it very well with salt until it's no longer slimy, I think it's hard to screw up.
  • Step 18
  • Enjoy as sashimi and carpaccio, and use the rest in simmered dishes and enjoy!
