Grilled Octopus with Satay

This is simple delicious dish of Vietnam. Most young Vietnamese people fall in love with this dish and I bet you will, too. You cannot forget its flavor from the first time. However, if you do not have a chance to visit Vietnam to taste it, you can make it at home.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 700gr fresh octopus
  • 1 Satay bottle (50gr – 100gr: Depend on your flavor)
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Spices: Salt, Sugar, Pepper, Lemon Fruit, Minced Garlic, Vegetable oil and Vietnamese Mint.

 

PROCESS:

Step 1: Separate heads and bodies of octopuses. Use scissors cut off their eyes. With their bodies, split haft and throw away their entrails. Next, clean with water added a little salt 3 times. Then, use soft towel to absorb water.

Step 2: Fry 3 tablespoons oil with minced garlic until its color turn yellow, then quickly add 4 tablespoons satay and fry in 1 minute. Turn off the heat and wait to get cool.

Step 3: Marinate octopuses with mixture in step 2 +2 teaspoons honey + minced garlic + oil + salt and put in fridge about 3 hours.

Step 4: Before making this step, I want to say that here is the most important step to create an amazing dish.

Grill octopuses about 3 – 5 minutes on 2 faces. Do not forget to spread a little oil around their faces to avoid to be burnt.

Finally, your dish is ready to serve. Put Vietnamese mint around plate before serving. Using with satay, lemon juice added a little pepper and salt or chili sauce will all bring a spectacular flavor in your mouth. I bet you will never forget its taste. Hope you like it. Good luck for your cooking.
