When I have some leftover octopus in the fridge and I'm worried about it going bad, I often make this hearty stew and serve it with some fresh bread coated with olive oil.

How you make it

Fry the garlic in the butter until it's slightly brown. Add the fish stock and simmer. Stir 1-inch strips (skinned obviously) of the octopus into the stock. If you prefer your octopus more tender you can beat it a bit before cooking. Cut the fennel into 1-inch strips and put it in the stock. Add the mint leaves and simmer for about an hour. Delicious!
