Bento Recipe: Boiled baby octopus


Back to the

Boiled baby octopus. Yep. It's like boiled eggs, but chewier.

First, get some cleaned baby octopi. Boil some water. When it's bubbling strongly, drop in the occies. Watch in queasy fascination as their tentacles curl into shell-like spirals. After two to three minutes take them out again. You're done.

These look pretty and flower-like when served upside-down, but if you want to gross people out pose them with the head upward.
