Octopus or squid with MCT mayo

Octopus/squid with MCT mayo


  • A bunch of small octopus or squid or both (heads cleaned out), or squid legs
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Garlic
  • Turmeric
  • Chili pepper
  • Eggs
  • Mustard Powder
  • Kimchi juice, Sauerkraut juice, or vinegar
  • MCT oil (or another oil)

  • For the mayo: use two egg yolks, salt, 1/2 tsp mustard powder, one tablespoon vinegar or kimchi/sauerkrat juice and mix with a blender, then add the oil drop by drop, while blending until thick. Add more oil until desired consistency is reached.
  • Put the octopus/squid parts into a heat-safe glass dish and pour some boiling water over them until they are covered. Then let them sit in the hot water for 30 seconds
  • Drain the water from the squid/octopus parts.
  • Melt a small amount of fat in a pot on medium high heat, then add the squid/octopus. Let it cook for a few minutes and drain the juices from the pot.
  • Now add a big chunk of butter, garlic, turmeric, modest amount of pepper, (optional: some dried herbs), and let them fry until they get a little brown (don't overcook!). Add salt to taste, stir, and serve with the mayo.
