10 ways to cook Paul; The Octopus

I can't believe it! My favourite team lost last night!

Again, predictions by the psychic octopus is right and Germany has lost their chance to pursue the Worldcup 2010 championship title to Spain. I'm not sure how this intelligent creature is able to rightly predict most of the matches because right now I am joining the Argentinians supporters to cook the Octopus! I'm sure Paul is now on the 'Most Wanted List' for a meal in Germany too!

Hmmm... let's see...

10 ways to cook Paul the Psychic Octopus...

1. Grilled Octopus -
The easiest way to cook it will be to marinate the meat with a little salt & pepper and put it on a grill. The meat will be tender and sweet!

2. Grilled sweet & sour Octopus - 
A little creativity with the grill and voila! Another delicious grilled dish!
Grill sliced octopus with lemon, honey and lotsa olive oil.

3. Toboyaki
The famous Japanese balls using the Octopus's family jewel! *smirk* We're making full use of each parts of the Octopus, even the testicles...

4. Stir-fry Octopus -
Stir fry octopus with chilli, coriander, garlic and ginger and serve it with salad and fries.

5. Octopus in Curry Sauce -
Aaahhh... our local favourite flavor... Curry! Use the spices to enhance the sweetness of the meat, could taste even better than mutton *wink*

6. Octopus Sashimi Salad -
If you love it raw, why not squeeze a little lemon, a little salt & pepper and garnish with some spices to make a delicious fresh salad...

7. Octopus Pasta - 
What could be more tasty than a little Italian for dinner and the thought of the psychic squid on your plate? Use your imagination and toss some octopus meat into your pot of Italian sauce...

8. Octopus Soup -
No fuss at all! Warm Octopus Soup! Cooked with fresh tomatoes, some green peas and toss a little basil into the pot... lovely~

9. Stir fried Squid with Chilli paste -
The aroma of this dish will leave everyone in your neighbourhood dripping saliva!! Woo hooooo! Stir fry octopus meat with some chopped chillies, garlic and chilli paste. Serve with rice would be most recommended.

10. Octopus Tempura -
Another Jap way to eat the octopus would be to wrap it like a roll.
Use fried egg to roll the meat and the taste would be even more yummy!Add into the roll some thinly sliced cucumber, bean sprout and whatever you fancy... tailor-made the roll to your liking~

Eventhough Paul is now kept in a safety tank, it will not stop us from visualizing him on our plates and gradually digesting in our stomach... oooohhhh I heard he is now in Aquarium Sea Life Centre in Oberhausen, Germany! Making it easier for the Germans to try the above cooking styles... *muahahahahaha* slurpppppp....

So, maybe now the genius squid will not interfere with the Worldcup 2010 finale result?!


  1. LOL, that's really funny.

  2. mouth watering but hey, he's right again for Spain-Netherlands finale! Viva España!
