I love octopus and thought this recipe sounded amazing. Have not tried this yet but wanted keep a copy so decided to store it here on Zaar. Prep and cooking time does not include time to marinate.

Nice recipe. We used fresh, finely sliced chili instead of the sauce. I think it needed about 4 hours of marinating as it was a bit tough still.
