Nakji Muchim / Spicy Octopus Salad

Been wanting to make this Nakji Muchim / Spicy Octopus Salad as a side dish. Korean called side dishes Banchan. I had bought a large frozen octopus from the Japanese shop when I went to buy the salmon fish some weeks . Grab some frozen Korean Oysters and NZ mussels too. I keep stock of them in my box freezer so that at any time I need seafood for my cooking, they are there for me. Lol ,I am like running a small restaurant but nope just keeping them for convenient sake. That's why it was a great thing that I had the octopus in the freezer for making this delicious Spicy Octopus Salad. I made a small portion as side dish. Seriously it tasted so good and we both love it . A keeper for sure! Recipe link is at the bottom of page. I used Korean Bapsang's Spicy Squid Salad. Except I used Octopus instead of Squid. And I added homegrown Water Spinach to the dish. So good that I will make this again for sure.
 easy to whip up and the taste is fantastic

spicy and the cucumber and water spinach adds crunch to the salad
boil the octopus first before slicing
and blanch the water spinach
We don't go wet market anymore
so frozen octopus will do for now
It is easy to put together the dressing for the salad
I have most of the basic korean sauce ingredients in my fridge as I cook Korean dishes very often
