 I do the same although I add aromatics like onion, garlic, and chili flakes.  Steaming it in its own juices gives a more flavorful result at the end.   I've never found octopus to be gamy in any way.  Unless perhaps it has been dried, which can often be the case in a greek restaurant but that usually only results in a chewier texture, not a gamy flavor.  
   Of course there is cooking in this challenge!!  It does not have to be a recreation of a dish in a scene, although it can be.  You can be as specific or as nonspecific as you like.  I think my original post says it the clearest.  So far, those who have submitted a dish really get it.  We have to think a little bit out of the box since we are not limited to ingredients and/or technique but the inspiration videos posted are fantastic, let's cook!
Roasted a chicken, now I'm making a soup, then tomorrow will try yet again to make a chicken pot pie to please the hubby.

With lots of salt, probably about 4 tbsp per roast Then I seared it and then I slathered it with mustard and herbs. Then I put it into a 225F oven until it...
The only thing that kills creativity is fear.  You have to push yourself a little, growth occurs when you step out of your comfort zone.  I would suggest that you ask your professor for sample "mystery box" ingredients and if you don't have enough confidence yet to do it at school then do it at home for yourself.     I would urge you to participate in the challenges at school too.  You never know what will happen under pressure.
