Weird Ghetto Umami Dinner


Ok, I’m going to share my ghetto umami dinner tonight: Canned octopus in olive oil (drained), lime juice, a squirt of organic mayo, a dab of Grey Poupon, a clove of chopped garlic, a shake each of smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, freshly ground black pepper. Washed down with a glass of box wine left over from Justin, my housesitter when I was in Brazil. It tastes like the ugly bastard stepchild of some weird Japanese izakaya fusion creation meets the kind of midnight munchies food I used to make with Caio in Barcelona back in the day. There is also the right kind of tender octopussy goodness that reminds me of the awesome octopus moqueca I had in Itaparica, Bahia last month with the kids from Capoeira Angola Quintal.
