    This week brings us Cynthia's Drunken Octopus:


    Cynthia Sestito: "Drunken Octopus "
    Things You will need:

    8 and 10 quart sauce pot

    Large sauté pan
    Sharp knife and large wooden spoon

    Cutting board

    Measuring cups/spoons

    Strainer

    Wire Whisk

    1. Prepare Octopus
    1 fresh young octopus (2-3 pounds)

    *

    Put octopus under running water. Slit open head to remove ink sac, intestines, and beak.

    *

    Wash well and pat dry.

    *

    Remove tentacles; peel off the outer thin membrane (skin)

    *

    Cut into 1-inch pieces.

    2. Sauté Octopus
    Sauté in sauce pot over medium heat with

    3 tablespoons sweet butter

    1 large garlic clove, thinly sliced

    1 medium sized yellow onion chopped fine


    3. Now add the following
    Stock Ingredients:

    1/c cup chopped celery, no leaves

    1 carrot finely chopped

    2 sprigs parsley

    2 sprigs thyme

    6 whole peeled medium garlic cloves

    5 cups chicken stock to cover the ingredients

    *To cut cooking time down (normally two to three hours) …I have learned the Italian cooks have a trick: take the cork from a wine bottle and add to the saucepan. It will cut the cooking time down by over half.

    *

    Cook until tender.

    *

    Strain sauce, remove octopus.
    *

    Set aside.

    ADD:

    1 stick sweet butter to sauce pan over medium heat.

    *

    Whisk in 2 tablespoons flour.

    *

    Return liquid to this sauce pan; cook over medium heat;
    *

    Thicken and reduce by a third.

    4. SAUCE
    WHISK and ADD:

    1 cup single malt scotch whiskey

    1 teaspoon roasted fresh jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped fine

    1/4 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

    1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

    1/4 teaspoon ground coriander

    Salt and pepper to taste



    *

    Return octopus to pan, reduce heat until sauce thickened.

    5. FINISH Drunken Octopus Dish:
    Now ADD:

    1/2 cup of seeded and chopped fresh tomatoes

    1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

    1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh scallions

    *

    Thank God they didn't give us nasty monkfish corndogs for a recipe. That's a nice tribute to Cynthia.

    Thanks for the suggestions and doing only part of the recipe. That makes a lot of sense. As corprip said, I don't mind fussing a bit over a great recipe, just not giving up my life to do it . I think the cream puffs and filling would actually be ok to do. Just not with everything else that was included on the presentation plate.

    I do like the spicy whipped cream idea and may think of trying it by itself in a cup of something wickedly hot and probably chocolate. I dont' expect tea to work. Now, if we just add in some kind of alcoholic tincture, we may just have ourselves a brand new drinky-poo. . Now then, what would work well with that? Grande Marnier? Drambuie?

    Any thoughts?
    Since there's cinnamon and pepper in the whipped cream, using a shot of Cinnamon Schnaps in a cuppa coffee with the whipped cream on top sounds pretty damn good to me!
    Still crazy, after all these shears

    corprip: I put Sambuca and Baileys together by themselves and call it a SamBaileys! It's pretty nice. I think your ideas would taste pretty yummy.

    Lambikins: That sounds great too. I didn't know there was such a thing as cinnamon schnaps.

    Nnenna...So, you have something good to share with all of us?

    John: Thanks for the recipe. It looks good....except for the Octopus! Maybe I'll substitute some other kind of seafood. I like calamari, just not the whole disecting of the creature thing. Yech . That's one "puss" I don't like! Besides, not many octopusses available in these parts.

    My orgasm in your mouth cake is good, but, sadly, I don't know the recipe anymore. I lost the card it was on, and I have very poor memory.

    How about Tuwaka (I think I spelled that right)?

    yes, there's cinnamon schmaps and it tastes pretty good in hot chocolate too. As does butterscotch snapps.

    And butterscotch snapps tastes good with Kahlua and cream (I just use milk!).

    I looked up tawaka liquor on the web. It sounds interesting but I have no idea if it's available up here. Didn't know it even existed. Thanks for the information, Allie
