Tako Su – Octopus Salad


Tako su is a cold plate of sliced, cooked octopus garnished with sticks of pale green cucumber, bathed in ponzu sauce and topped with sesame seeds, sliced scallion, and a drizzle of wasabi mayonnaise; the sauce has an engagingly smoky, citrus taste that complements the octopus. Recently I bought a ready-cooked sliced cold octopus and decided to make tako su with it. All I have to do is to mix with some ponzu sauce but I still mix with some sesame oil to enhance the flavor.
