Preparation Instructions

For the Octopus:


Cook the octopus without salt (or 8 thick octopus tentacles), and thaw well if necessary, in a pan with water until the thickest tentacles are tender.


Cut the tentacles in half vertically, season them with lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste and set aside.


Pass the octopus in flour and then the 2 beaten eggs and fry in very hot oil. Reserve.

For Açorda:


Start by cutting the homemade bread into slices (preferably hard) and soak them in warm water.


Heat the oil, with the sliced garlic, half the chopped coriander and sauté everything.


Add the squeezed bread and wrap everything very well. Stir everything vigorously until you get a homogeneous mixture and, if necessary, add a little water so that the açorda is not so thick.


Season with salt and pepper and add the remaining chopped coriander.


At the time of serving, wrap the 3 egg yolks with the açorda and serve immediately with the fillets sprinkled with lemon juice.
