Smoked Octopus Over Wheat-Free Spaghetti!!!!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Happy weekend great smoky folk! I smoked great octopus today for 25 minutes (just mopped through grapeseed oil first) and layered that over wheat-free "brown rice & flax" spaghetti, with olive oil and caraway seeds - paired with Bordeaux - and it was WON-DER-FUL!!!!

 

Cheers and here's to today!!!! - Leah

I must say that looks pretty darn good.

Now were talking.  Did you brine or marinate the octopus?  What temp did you bring it too? Was it local?

 

 I love pickled baby octopus. I can only get it at a Hong Kong restaurant in Spokane.  Have you tried pickling it?

 

Good job, it looks wonderful.

Thank you David, and Tom! It was superb!!! I grill octopus a couple times per week (and yes, pickled is good too) but smoked was the softest, most savory (without any brine or salt added whatsoever) and the smell was downright hypnotic!

 

It really was a masterful pairing with the tobacco-esque, woody, leather, and coffee notes of the Bordeaux! The soft and succulent octopus pieces just twirled beautifully with each taste of the spaghetti too, and the caraway seeds lent an aroma which complemented the smoldering and alluring one of the mollusk meat so well! A new favorite method for me, for certain!

 

As for temps, my quite simpleton and temporary "all in one" smoker doesn't have a thermometer on it, but I am guessing that it was on the low side of high, as far as heat is concerned. Fantastic stuff!

 

Happy Sunday to all!!!! - Leah

What a wonderful description.  Makes my mouth water.
