Over the past month we have shared some of our favourite Argentinian dishes from our restaurant, The Independent in Gembrook. Today’s recipe is no exception, we love this simple grilled octopus with paprika and salted almond.
Octopus is a popular dish in Argentina. We inherited it from the Spanish immigrants during the first and second world wars. The secret to the best tasting octopus is to cook it without salt, and then allow the meat to cool down in the cooking liquid. It makes a huge difference.
Now that you have all five recipes from us, we definitely recommend inviting your friends and family over for a big cook up and sharing in a traditional Argentinian feast!
