When I can obtain a fresh octopus I love fried octopus. I clean my Octopus well and cut the arms up into small bite size pieces and then I double bread my octopus by putting the octopus into a well mixed up milk and egg solution and then into the below breading.
1. Two Cups Self Rising Corn Meal.
2. One Cup Self Rising Flour.
3. One Tablespoon Lemon Pepper.
4. One Teaspoon Ground Sea Salt.
I mix all the dry breading together and I dip my octopus into the milk and egg and then into the dry breading. Then back into the milk and egg mixture and then back into the dry breading and I deep fry the double breaded pieces in pre heated 350 degree vegetable oil until golden brown and I end up with some real tasty octopus.
