- Fresh octopus, cleaned and cut into chunks
- Quality white or red wine
- Olive oil
- Chopped onions (optional)
Put the octopus chunks in a saucepan and let them be cooked without water (the octopus releases its own liquids). When you prick it with fork and it is soft, add 1 water glass of wine per pound of octopus. The octopus continues to boil in its liquids and the wine. Once the food “caramelizes”, add olive oil and optionally some chopped onions. Sauté 2-3′ and it is ready.
