Grilled Octopus Recipe

  • 2 tablespoons of Saffron Dukkah Mix (the star of the show!)
  • 1 teaspoon of Smoked Sea Salt (to echo the ocean's whisper)
  • 1 clove of Garlic (for a bit of pizzazz)
  • Zest and juice of 1 Lemon (citrusy zing!)
  • 1 teaspoon of Oregano (herbal notes of the Mediterranean)
  • 3-4 tablespoons of Olive Oil (liquid gold!)
  • 1 Octopus (your oceanic centerpiece)

Preparation - Unleash the Kraken!

  1. Begin your culinary adventure by giving your octopus a spa day. Clean it thoroughly, bidding farewell to its ink sac, beak, and eyes.
  2. Wash away any lingering sea tales and prepare for a boiling escapade. You can opt for a pre-cooked octopus to save time in your culinary voyage.
  3. Zest and juice your lemon, capturing the essence of citrusy oceans.
  4. Boil your octopus with grace, letting it simmer gently in its own aquatic world.

Cooking Instructions - Sizzle & Seize!

Grilled Octopus dishes

  1. Let the boiled octopus cool in its own mystical potion to retain its sea-kissed skin.
  2. Pat it dry like a gentle sea breeze.
  3. Whip up your marinade: olive oil, garlic, sea salt, oregano, and the pièce de résistance, Saffron Dukkah Mix.
  4. Bathe your octopus in this marinade. Let it soak up the flavours for at least 30 minutes - patience is key!
  5. Grill time! Sear each tentacle on a hot grill for about 2 minutes each side, crafting the perfect char.
  6. Serve with a side of your choice and a drizzle of lemon juice. Voila! A dish that Neptune would envy!

So there you have it, fellow foodies. A grilled octopus recipe that’s not just a meal, but a journey. Bon appétit! 🍴✨
