Octopus Recipe

Ingredients:
1-2 pound octopus.
2 shallots
5 cloves of garlic
A whole bunch of olive oil
Sea salt
Cracked pepper

Instructions:

The color of octopus should be a light gray and it shouldn’t have a strong, fishy aroma. (Make sure the beak, ink sacks and eyes are removed before cooking)

Mince the garlic and shallots.

Heat the roasting pan and put in just a little oil. Saute the shallots and garlic, then pour more oil, like two or three inches deep.

Rub the octopus with the salt and pepper, then put into the oil so that the octopus will be completely submerged.

Cover the pan and leave over low heat for two or three hours.

After a while (maybe an hour) the octopus will have begun to firm up. If the octopus rises out of the oil make incisions where the tentacles attach to the body so that you can force the octopus back under the surface of the oil.

After around three hours of cooking time, if the octopus head cuts easily and has a pliable texture, it is done. It will be chewy not rubbery.

Slice the tentacles, fan it on a plate and dust it with the sea salt.

Seafood Patties Recipe

Ingredients:
6 ounce can tuna or crab meat, drained
6 ounce frozen salad shrimp, thawed and drained
2 tablespoons celery, minced
2 tablespoons green pepper, minced
1 tablespoon green onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 egg
1/8 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning or paprika
Pinch cayenne pepper, optional
Dash Tabasco, optional
1 ounce Monterey jack cheese, shredded
1/4 cup crushed pork rinds, 1 ounce
Oil for frying
Butter

Instructions:

Finely mince about 3/4 of the shrimp almost to a paste. Keep the rest whole for texture. If desired, sauté the celery, green pepper, green onion and garlic in a little butter until tender-crisp.

In a medium bowl, combine the seafood and vegetable mixture. Using a fork, stir in the egg until very well incorporated. Stir in all the seasonings, cheese and pork rinds. Mix well until it becomes a thick sort of paste.

Chill at least 30 minutes.

Heat enough oil to at least cover the bottom of a very large nonstick skillet. When the oil is good and hot, spoon in the seafood mixture, dividing into about 6-8 mounds. Using two spoons, gently shape and flatten into patties.

Fry on medium heat until very nicely browned on bottom. Don’t be tempted to flip them until they are well-browned or they may fall apart. They are tender and quite fragile. Flip and brown well on the other side.

You may want to divide the “batter” differently depending on how many servings you want. For 2 or 3 servings, divide into six patties, for 4 servings, make 8 small patties.

Makes 2-4 servings
Can be frozen
