- Fill a steaming pot with water making sure that water is below the tray line, bring it to a boil over high heat.
- Line the steaming basket with Fremantle Octopus, making sure to evenly distribute to achieve even cooking.
- Reduce the heat to a simmer and insert the steaming basket into the steaming pot. Steam with a closed lid for about 20 minutes.
