Roasted octopus in tomato sauce


  • Clean the octopus very well and then, divide its tentacles.
  • Preheat the oven to 150°C (300° F) set to fan. 
  • With a sharp knife, remove the beak of the octopus, spread the head and, as soon as you clean it, cut it into pieces.  
  • If the tentacles are large, cut them in half. 
  • Add all of the ingredients into a bowl, mix them well, and pour the mixture into a baking pan
  • Roast in the oven for 2 hours. 
  • Check that the octopus is ready by pricking it with a fork. Do the same for the potatoes, too. In case it needs more time, return the baking pan to the oven and roast it for 30 more minutes.
  • Towards the end of the cooking time, check whether the water of the food has been reduced too much, and add a few tablespoons of water, if needed.
  • Remove from the oven and serve.


Instead of adding the tentacles whole into your food, you can cut them into 3 cm pieces.
