Killing fish and time with Hugo

Purple Octopus

1 octopus, beak and eyes removed

1 red cabbage, sliced so it’ll fit in a juicer

Juice or puree one head of red cabbage.

Place the octopus in a tupperware and cover with the cabbage juice.

Place in fridge for 24 hours then remove and rinse.

*At this point I vacuum sealed and cooked the octopus using the Sous Vide device but you could otherwise

bring it to a boil and cook on medium heat in water for 20 minutes per pound.

Sous Vide Method

Preheat Sous Vide bath to 180 F

Vacuum seal the octopus and cook in Sous Vide for four hours.

At this point the octopus will be perfectly tender and ready to use in any recipe. I used my Searzall food

torch to give it some color and a little charring

The great thing about cooking codfish tongue, cheek and collar is that most people throw these away and you get them free or super cheap!

Prepare batter per instructions on the Fry Mix box.
Dip the cod pieces in the batter, let drip and then slowly lower into the oil. Do not overcrowd or the oil
temperature will drop and you’ll have soggy food.
Fry until golden which should be about five minutes.
Lift basket, let oil drain and then place seafood to drain on a plate with paper towels.

So Clay invited friends Rich Collins and Vinnie Matturro to join him to eat a pile of tinned fish. The boys quickly realized they were in over their heads. They then learn about what happens when tuna is cooked without removing the workers from the oven. Enjoy this show!
