    Chef Jackson's Note:

    I found these at a market in Hawaii last year and really liked them. When I got home I tried to find a recipe for them on the web.There doesn't seem to be one. With a little trial and error I came up with this recipe and it is pretty close to the real thing. Give it a try. Hope you like it.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 lbs baby octopus (cleaned)
    • 1 cup teriyaki marinade (I use Mr.Yoshidas)
    • 2 tablespoons black bean paste
    • 1/4 cup soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons mirin
    • 2/3 cup brown sugar (packed)
    • 1 garlic clove (minced)
    • 1 teaspoon ginger (grated)
    • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
    • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
    • 1/2 cup sesame oil (black)
    • 2 green onions (Chopped)
    • 1 tablespoon chili-garlic sauce
    • 15 drops red food coloring (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine all of the ingredients.
    2. 2
      Marinate for 4 to 6 hours in the refrigerator.
    3. 3
      Strain out the octopus. Reserving the marinade.
    4. 4
      In a wok or large sauce pan bring the reserved marinade to a boil.
    5. 5
      Turn the heat to low and allow the sauce to cool slightly.
    6. 6
      Add the octopus and cook slowly for 2 to 4 minutes.
    7. 7
      The octopus are done when they firm up and the tentacles curl.(Be careful not to over cook or they will get tough and rubbery.).
    8. 8
      Remove the octopus from the sauce. Discard the sauce.
    9. 9
      Place octopus in a bowl with a tight fitting lid. Refrigerate. They are best served cold in my opinion.
    10. 10
      Enjoy!
