Step by Step Instructions


Step 1

First, you'll need the raw octopus and a large pot of water. You'll need enough water to cover the seafood with the cooking liquid.

Step 2

Next you'll either steam the octopus or braise it on low heat in the oven for a few hours on a bed of aromatic herbs and spices.

Step 3

Finally the octopus is finished off on a hot grill (or smoker) for a few minutes for those appealing (and delicious) charred bits.

Top Tip

You can braise the octopus ahead of time and store it in the fridge for a day or two before bringing it back to room temperature and grilling right before serving.
