Octopus - Fried Baby Octopus With Onion

I have been cooking very very simple food recently as I have been pretty busy with school work, work and games .This is a dish we thought of ourselves. We had no idea what to do wif baby octopus. I would have fried it and make a salted egg sauce with it but it seems like to much of a hassle.


500g Baby Octopus
3 cloves garlic (diced)
4 onions (sliced)
1 tbsp Dried Chili Flakes
3 tbsp Soy Sauce
1 tbsp Shao Xing Wine
2 tbsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
3 slices Ginger
1 tbsp Corn Starch.

Preparation method:

Fry octopus in hot oil for 3 mnutes (until half cooked) and take out octopus. Throw away oil and water from the wok.

Heat 3 tbsp oil. Add onions. Fry till fragrant, add ginger and garlic for half minute or until onions 3/4 cooked. Add octopus and rest of ingredients. Fry til octopus is cooked. The octopus should produce water. Mix corn starch with 5 to 6 tbsp water. Add corn starch solution bit by bit until the gravy has achieved wanted consistancy. Taste and season accordingly before serving.
