The head of a small octopus is not a very substantial thing—it’s a balloon-like casing—thin and less flavorful than the tentacles if only because it is so insubstantial, but it doesn’t hurt to have them in your frying pan and on your plate.
- Why is my octopus slimy? Octopus muscles are full of collagen and they release a lot of gelatin, which if not drawn out from the muscles can leave the octopus rubbery and gelatinous. Use more water than you need to draw out as much of the excess gelatin as possible.
- What do you do with a rusty BBQ plate? Turn the BBQ on high heat. Scrub as much corrosion off the plate as you can, using a metal scraper or a spatula. After step 2, if there is still rust left on the plate, turn the BBQ on high temperature once again. Pick up regular cooking oil and pour a bit on the barbecue plate. Rub the hotplate with a grill stone.
- "How do you clean a BBQ plate before cooking?" Turn on the BBQ on high heat for 15-20 mins to loosen up any rust and debris from the plate. Turn off the BBQ so that it cools down. While the plate is dry, use a metal scraper or spatula to scrub the corrosion off the plate and remove excess dust with a paper towel. Wipe the surface with a paper towel.
- Is octopus poisonous to eat? Live octopus is a delicacy in some parts of the world, including South Korea and Japan. But if it isn't prepared properly, it could kill you. A nutritionist told INSIDER it's not recommended because the suckers make octopus a choking hazard.
- "How do I get the black stuff off my frying pan?" Soak a burnt pan with soap and water, and add a dryer sheet into the mix. Allow it to sit for an hour. The dryer sheet (you can substitute a tablespoon of fabric softener) will loosen the burnt-on food and leave you with a shiny like-new pan.
- How do chefs prepare octopus? The most basic way of cooking octopus is to simmer it in liquid. Fill a saucepan with salted water and bring to the boil. Add the octopus, reduce the heat immediately and simmer gently for 45–60 minutes. It's important that the water is turned down to a gentle simmer once the octopus is in the pan.
