Materials

  • 2 lbs. fresh Octopus (tako/he’e), cleaned and chopped thin
  • 4 cups flour, for dusting
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup lechon spice, (the spice rack)
  • 6-7 cups canola oil (for deep frying)

Kim Chee Aioli

  • ½ cup kim chee, squeezed dry
  • ½ tablespoon garlic, minced
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon calamansi or lemon juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped fine

Instructions

  • Mix flour, salt, pepper and lechon spice well. This is your breading for tako.
  • Heat oil in a wok or large frying pan.
  • Place flour in brown paper bag along with small amount of chopped tako.
  • Close bag and shake until tako is covered in seasoned flour.
  • Remove tako from bag leaving excess flour in bag. ( I use a screened bowl to shake excess flour off).
  • Once oil is around 350 degrees, place breaded tako in oil and cook for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.

How To Serve:
