Ingredients for Vinegar Octopus:

  • Peel and clean the onion, then slice it into rounds. Rinse the scallions, cilantro, and cilantro, and chop them into small sections.

Step 2: Prepare the Dipping Sauce

When making vinegar octopus, you can’t skip the essential chili dipping sauce.

To prepare the sauce, crush the green chili peppers into a small bowl, add 1 teaspoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1 teaspoon of lime juice, then stir well. Now you have a tantalizing dipping sauce.

Step 3: Prepare the Broth

Combine equal parts water and vinegar (1:1 ratio) and bring it to a boil. Once boiling, add the onion and fried shallots to the pot. You can season the broth according to your taste. Continue to simmer for about 8-10 minutes, then add the octopus pieces and savor the dish.

II/ Vegetables to Accompany Vinegar Octopus

Many people wonder which vegetables go well with vinegar octopus. KINGFISH suggests some vegetables to complement and enhance the flavors of the dish:

  1. Water spinach (rau diếp cá): Water spinach has a fresh and crisp taste, balancing the sourness of the vinegar. It is often used in dipping vinegar-based dishes like spring rolls.
  2. Lettuce: Lettuce has a mild, fresh, and crisp texture. Adding lettuce to the dish enhances its freshness and appeal.
  3. Raw vegetables: You can use various raw vegetables like water spinach, choy sum, celery, and cilantro to diversify your meal.
  4. Perilla leaves (rau húng): Perilla leaves have a unique fragrance and a slightly spicy taste. Including perilla leaves in the dish elevates the flavor and adds color to the dipping sauce.

Choose the vegetables that you prefer and combine them according to your taste to create a flavorful and enticing vinegar octopus meal.

  • 2 tablespoons of miso
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 scallion
  • 2 sprigs of coriander
  • 1 shallot
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 chili pepper
  • 1 piece of ginger
  • 1 lime
  • 100ml white wine
  • 1 tablespoon of cooking oil
  • Common seasonings

Now, let’s get started!

Step 1: Prepare the Ingredients

  • Wash the octopus with lime or salt to reduce any fishy odor. Rinse it with water and cut it into bite-sized pieces.
  • For the miso broth, take a strainer, and slowly pour water over the miso to strain and collect 100ml of miso liquid.

When the shallot turns golden and releases its aroma, add the tomato, stir-fry until the tomato becomes colorful, then pour in 400ml of water and the 100ml of strained miso liquid. Bring it to a boil.

Once the broth is boiling, add the seasonings, including ½ teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of seasoning powder, and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Stir well. Then add the octopus.
