I'd cut the octopus into large pieces and saute in olive oil over medium/high heat for 2-3 minutes. Add chopped garlic and saute for another minute or two.
Add wine and bring to a boil over high heat. Stir well and let it cook down for 3-4 minutes. Add tomatoes and chile flakes and bring to a simmer.
Add about a teaspoon of salt and honey or sugar. Mix well, cover the pot and simmer for 30 minutes.
At 30 minutes, add caper, plus dill and the parsley.
Then serve with dill and parsley and black pepper. Eating this with pasta or bread either hot or at room temperature.
phew this thread couldve been a lot worse. like that fucking octopus they had predicting the football what the hell were they thinking. everybodys favorite little abomination. that is of course an honorable position matthew but its not a world full of heroes out there.
