Octopus Salad

Fresh Japanese Octopus can be used in a variety of dishes.

For this fusion dish, the octopus has been freshly caught in Japan and then boiled and freezed immediately. What you have to do is only to unfreeze it at home! You may, of course, use fresh ones from markets!
Bonus: It goes really well with wine too!
