Grilled octopus from whole raw octopus

 
INGREDIENTS
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Quarter lemon
  • 2 * quarters of lime
  • Large pinch of sweet peppers
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Handful of chopped cilantro
  • 1 large clove of garlic chopped

DIRECTIONS

1

Thaw the octopus in the fridge.
2

Set up a pot with water in it and wait until it is boiling.
3

Clean octopus well, removing the beak and cleaning the inside of the head.
4

When water is boiling dip octopus 4-5 times for a few seconds at each time (in and out, in and out, not letting it fully in the pot), then leave it in and cook it for 45 minutes.
5

When it is ready, place it on the chopping board and cut off the tentacles. The head is a great addition to pasta sauces (stay tuned for a recipe) when you grind it.
6

Marinate octopus in a bowl using 1 quarter lemon squeezed lemon, one quarter lime squeezed, 1.5 tbsp olive oil, salt, pepper, sweet paprika and put in on the grill for 5 minutes each side.

When finished, sprinkle half a tablespoon of olive oil with lime juice, chopped garlic and cilantro on it. I paired it with grilled shishitos and a Pinot Grigio.
