- Do not cut the octopus into too small pieces, because it will shrink when it encounters hot oil. Too small pieces are not only unsightly but also difficult to find.
- Do not continue to stir-fry celery after blanching. After blanching, the celery will not have a crunchy texture and will become soft vegetables, which will affect the taste.
Should I wash octopus before cooking?
There is a lot of mucus on the surface of the octopus, so it must be thoroughly cleaned, and the internal organs must be completely cleaned. The skin of octopus has a strong fishy smell, so if it is used for frying, you must tear off that layer of black skin.
Why do they wash octopus with flour?
Although there is not much worry about some smooth parts of the octopus, there are a lot of foreign objects on the octopus sucker, so rubbing and cleaning with flour is the key to dealing with the octopus.
