Things you Should Know About Stuffed Baby Octopus with XO sauce

  1. Stuffed baby octopus with XO sauce is more a fusion dish than an authentic Chinese one. This is because of the use of octopus, which has a slight modern touch to it.
  2. Many kitchens across China are considered incomplete without the perfect baby octopus recipe. Stuffed Baby Octopus is a local favourite in Shanghai. Street vendors as well as fine-dining restaurants plate up this dish with a side of dipping sauce, come rain come shine.
  3. Sometimes, the oyster sauce can be substituted by various other sauces just to keep the Eastern-Western fusion going. Many restaurants in China often experiment with their sauces in order to stand out.
  4. This dish is also served with pasta, especially in restaurants in and around Hong Kong. They are immensely popular in the area, with the octopus blending with the smooth pasta flavours beautifully.
  5. Baby tomatoes, when added to the dish, provide a great burst of tang. Therefore, many kitchens employ cherry tomatoes, halved and fried, to supplement this Chinese delicacy.
