Octopus with miso sauce

Hi everybody!. I’m here again offering you a new exotic recipe. Today I publish my first English post of my second season. I usually publish in Spanish but, sometimes it is good to share the recipe with a lot more people, so, this is the reason why I’m also writing in English.

Today’s recipe is a recipe that a tried for first time in a really nice restaurant in Madrid that makes really good fusion food. They usually mix Spanish recipes with oriental techniques and the results are amazing. When I tried this amazing dish, I began experimenting in my kitchen until I got the same result. I have no idea if I’ve discovered the original recipe, but one thing is sure: The one I propose to you today is very good.

Ok!, let’s go: Octopus with miso sauce


1 potato
200 grams of boiled octopus
1 teaspoon of miso paste
2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
2 tablespoons of soja (soy sauce Kikkoman)
4 teaspoons of sugar
A little bit of dill

How to prepare:

I love this dish because it’s very simple to prepare: it’s ready in 3 steps.

Step One: Prepare the potato and the octopus
The first thing that we have to do is clean the potato and boil it in a pot with boiling water. When the potato is done, we peel it and we cut it in slices of 1 cm. We cut the octopus in slices of ½ cm more or less.

Step Two: Prepare the miso sauce
For this we only need to mix in a bowl the miso paste with the mayonnaise. We have to mix well until obtaining a smooth sauce.

Step Three: Prepare the soja caramel
In a pan, put sugar and soja. Heat until the sugar melts and caramelizes. Leave at medium heat during 3 minutes to reduce and obtain a sticky sweet soja sauce.

Now, We have to put together the plate:

In a nice plate, we first put the slices of potato and the slices of octopus. Then, we cover with the miso sauce. We decorate with the dill. To finish the plate, add little lines of soja caramel. And… that’s it!. It is simple… isn’t it?

OK boys & girls: that’s all folks!! :-)
Take care and enjoy a lot in the kitchen.

I’ll be back. See you soon.

I just wanted to add to your translation, that "Soja" is "Soy Sauce" , and can be found at any aisian market.
