Portuguese Fresh Octopus

Hi everyone.
Remember my post “Octopus Salad“?
Well, a friend fisherman brought us this two beauties:

This two Octopus weight over one kilo each and were really fresh. I cleaned them and froze. They become tender and cook better when they´re first frozen.
Here in Portugal we have a few traditional Christmas dishes.
By tradition, most Catholics don´t eat meat on Christmas eve. Instead, we have Codfish and Octopus dishes. Octopus is traditional in north regions while Codfish is nationwide.
This time, I´ll cook Octopus rice with vegetables, it´s wintertime and the weather doesn´t invite cold salads.
I´ll share that recipe later.
See you soon.
