About Octopus in Olive Oil:
Octopus has been eaten in Spain for centuries, and many ways to cook it have been developed through the years. Galicia is known for its fresh seafood, and octopus is a staple ingredient in the region's cuisine. Traditionally, the octopus is boiled in a large copper cauldron. Chefs will dip the tentacles in the boiling water three times, first, to curl them. Timing is critical. Don’t boil enough, and the octopus will be rubbery. Boil for too long, and the octopus will be overcooked. Once the octopus is ready, it is cut and trimmed. Finally, it is seasoned generously with salt, paprika, and drizzled with some olive oil. Octopus in olive oil is a popular seafood dish in Spain, and it is often used in various dishes, such as salads, crostini, pasta, and pizza.
