Grilled Octopus

Ingredients:
2 lb Cleaned and trimmed octopus
2 tbsp Fresh lemon juice
8 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1/4 Cup finely chopped parsley
3 tbsp Red wine vinegar
1 tsp Cracked black pepper
1 tbsp Dried oregano
1 tsp Coarse salt

How to make :
Preheat grill to high. If it gets over heated, lower the heat and bring to medium.
Rub off red skin of the octopus.
Chop the octopus body into quarters leaving the legs whole.
Dip the pieces under cold water. Rinse and blot dry.
You can directly place the legs onto the grill.
Smear the grill top with grape seed oil.
Arrange the cut pieces on the grill and cook.
Turn every minute until the pieces are well cooked on all sides.
Chop the cooked octopus into bite-sized pieces and transfer to a bowl.
Mix lemon juice, oregano, vinegar, parsley and salt together.
Pour the mixture over the octopus and toss to mix.
Marinate the octopus for 30 minutes.
Add salt and black pepper.
Serve it with lemon wedges.

looks good Nightcooker!!!

little tip, but it involves a hammer...

beat it (GENTLY) with a hammer before cooking, the meat will turn out much more tender...

It's not just Japanese, a lot of Asian cultures eat live octopus. They are quite good, but dangerous due to the little suckers holding on while going down A test of manhood in some cultures.

I don't know if I would test my boyfriend to see how much of a man he is by asking him to eat live octopus. Hehe! Even though we tried all kind of crazy food when we went to Bangkok last summer.
