Story Behind this Recipe
My mother usually gives me vegetables and fruits, but this time, she gave me boiled octopus. I'm so obsessed with butter and ponzu sauce these days that I cooked the octopus with it.
I used garlic powder to make this recipe simple, but you could also use chopped or tubed garlic. In that case, add butter and stir-fry over low heat until it releases a nice aroma before adding the octopus.
