Octopus sa Kamatis

This recipe was sent to us by Melissa Polito of Polomolok, South cotabato, Philippines.

This is the first time that we’ll feature an octopus recipe and I’m pretty much excited. By looking at the ingredients and procedure, this seems to be a quick and healthy one. Imagine a healthy recipe that only requires less than 10 minutes to cook, I can’t wait to try this.

Thank You Melissa!

One thought on “Octopus sa Kamatis”

  1. I know octopus is a delicatessan and all, but I could never eat it. Just looking at the tentacles in their makes me queezy, though I am sure it is delicious, I don’t think I could get over the look of it.
