Χταπόδι Τουρσί - Pickled Octopus 🐙 🥕. We always have a variety of mezzedes on our table alongside dinner. Olives, feta, dips or pickled veggies to name a few. This would have to be one of our favourites. It’s brilliant alongside dishes such as Spanakorizo, Gigantes, Fakies and many more. Here’s the recipe! 🐙. 1 kg baby octopus or 1 large octopus. 1 cup water. Pickle. 1:1 quantities water and white vinegar. Depending on the size of the jar you’re using. 1 chopped carrot. A few stalks of celery roughly chopped. 3 cloves sliced garlic. 1 teaspoon oregano. Cracked pepper. Enough olive oil to cover the surface of the jar once filled with the octopus and the pickle. Add your washed, tenderised and uncut octopus to a pot along with water over medium high heat. Cook with the lid on for about 1 hour or until the octopus has softened. The octopus will release its own water as well which is why you don’t need much. Once it has softened, remove from the pot and cut the legs of the baby octopus or if you’re using a large octopus, cut the tentacles into chunks and set aside. Once octopus has slightly cooled add it to your sterilised jar along with the carrot, celery, garlic and oregano. Combine the water and vinegar and bring it to the boil. Whilst hot, pour the liquid into the jar of octopus and vegetables and pour a layer of olive oil approximately 1-2cm thick over the surface. Seal your jar and allow it to cool before placing it in the refrigerator. Allow the octopus for pickle for a week before opening. Enjoy as a meze and eat within 10 days 🐙. Note: the octopus might produce a jelly like substance when served straight from the fridge, this turns back into liquid at room temp. Enjoy! And kali orexi! ❤️❤️. ❤️❤️ @marys _kouzina . #mykitchen #maryskouzina #seafood #octopus #pickle #huffposttaste #fresh #fish #seafoodlover #sbsfood #fishing #foodstagram #foodlover #greek #greekfood #greece #recipes #delish #sydney #food #homemadefood #tradition #foodies #foodie #foodlover er #sydneyeats #yummy #delicious #sbscolourtherapy #meze #seafood
