Octopus under a baking lid – Hobotnica ispod peke
Octopus under a baking lid Ingredients :
- 2 kg octopus
- 2 kg potatoes
- 5-6 large onions
- A handful of pickled capers
- 200 ml olive oil
- Rosemary leaves
- Few laurel leaves
Cooking Instructions :
Cut the octopus, onions and potatoes into larger pieces and place baking dish.
Add capers, oil, rosemary, laurel and pepper. Cover and bake for at least one hour (in oven 200°C.
The best way to prepare octopus is over live coals under baking lid, but if you can’t the same recipe is for baking in electric or gas oven.
Note: octopus will be tender of you prepare it day before baking.
Clean the octopus and put it in deep freeze overnight.
I never use salt in this dish because octopus is salty enough.
