This spicy octopus recipe is a fusion of Asian and South African cuisine that makes me come for more. Although Octopus and squid are looking similar and are actually
related they are not prepared the same way. In the western world as well as in South Africa squid are mostly enjoyed as calamari rings, that are usually covered with a batter and then deep fried for just a few minutes in hot oil.
However if the same method of preparation would be applied to octopus we would end up with very tough and rubbery pieces of meat which would greatly reduce the joy in the meal. But it is actually quite easy to make this octopus recipe an outstanding tasty affair. It just takes a little longer than preparing squid.
