recipe is great! And there was in *Metro* of this leaflet to the counter with fresh fish ... Courage and made her and licked his fingers. Only after I put the octopus into the water and izpenih, then added a little onion slices and bay leaf. After being cooked in a pan transferred only meat and continued as a recipe ... Instead bay leaf rosemary added as original.

How to rip octopus, people? Write some things, it is not a rabbit ... Or for *traces of sand* ... such absurdities. Octopuses his swim in the water, such as fish. The fish did not wash because traces of sand, but because of pollution during transportation or packing. And what *izpenvane* question? *Foam* is obtained only in meats, because the remaining tissue blood. Octopus blood there, what to foam if washed properly?

skinning people confused squid octopus :), there are tentacles, eyes, head, ink bag. But where in squid beak? Lest it comes to the inner bone of squid.

I do not know what everyone is confused, but makes me stazhnyava as I read such things ... Monday they ordered octopus again and looking how to prepare it, and I came across this recipe.

bash for octopus case, I do not particularly practical experience, but from what I've read and seen there are different ways of processing octopus - peeling skin is not uncommon. In the central part of the octopus has a hard part, which is its beak (http://static.ddmcdn.com/gif/octopus-2.jpg). Washed and scraped to remove any mucus remained in octopus. It is not impossible to have remained in the sand sucker - still octopus lives at the bottom.

I watched the video and from what I see I can only conclude that the obvious case of different types zhivitni- what I use, is negligible head, and significantly greater part of his body is made up of tentacles which anyway can not be peeled. Moreover, just in the skin are those pigments that give appetizing purple color of cooked (cooked) octopus. The most significant difference that I see is that the octopus, which I buy, there are two lines in venduzki tentacles, and this in the video - only one line. May indeed play a role in what kind of octopus is cooked. I ate octopus and in Spain, where he readied before my eyes, in Portugal, in Frazzanò and also in Italian and Greek families - never seen to peel the scalp. I would not say it was my omission is clearly something that can be done, but not necessarily be done. As for the sand - sucker have a form that simply nowhere to keep sand in them. It turbot and demersal fish, but does not collect sand.

Rally, various types of octopus, different sizes. Different ways of processing also has interesting are here but not their place to discuss them (topic better). This stripped as I understand it is made for larger octopus. For sucker and tendrils in many places mention of sand and dirt, and I think that can agree - it is important to be washed.
