Basic Preparation: Octopus

For small octopus place in boiling water for 7-10 minutes. For the larger octopus increase the boiling time to 30 minutes.
Once boiling process is complete small octopus should be left in pot for an additional 10 minutes. For large octopus let it soak for an additional 15 minutes.

Once ready the octopus just needs a squeeze of lemon and can be eaten right away.

For more flavors take the boiled octopus and marinate with extra virgin olive oil, white vinegar and pepper and place on the grill. Once the octopus is charred on both sides remove from grill and serve immediately with a slice lemon on the side.
