I recently went to an Asian market and picked up a number of ingredients that I am unsure of how to use. One of the more exotic was an entire dried octopus. It's a Chinese ingredient but I am not sure how to use it. Any help or any recipes would be much appreciated.
There are serveral of dried octopus in Aisan markets. If it fairly cheap then it used to favor what the Chinese call "old fire" soup (long cooked soup). They add favor and can be eaten if so desired. About 3 buck a bag.
If is more costly then it can be soak to reforn and cut up for stir fry. Normally the name on these cuttle fish. Normally sold at more ten dollars a pound.
If you read the label I would have a better ides of what it is.
