How to make Octopus in Tomato Sauce

  • Place the octopus in a large pot and fill with enough lightly salted water to cover. Bring to a boil, and then simmer over medium heat until octopus is opaque, about 15 minutes. Drain and allow to cool slightly; cut into bite-size pieces.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, mint leaves, curry powder and mixed spice; cook and stir until onion is soft.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Mix in the octopus pieces, wine, lemon zest and orange zest. Simmer for 3 to 4 minutes to blend the flavors, then stir in the tomatoes, tomato paste, peas, potatoes, olives and bay leaves.
  • Cover and simmer over low heat until potatoes and octopus are tender, about 45 minutes.
