We went to a BBQ last week and the hostess served this delicious Portuguese Octopus Salad. She was fascinated by the fact I was keen to photograph her cooking and share with the world. Enjoy!
1kg of Octopus
1 Onion (finely chopped)
1 Bunch of flat leaved parsley (finely chopped)
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
Salt and pepper
Remove head of octopus and cut tentacles into approximately 1″ pieces.
Wash thoroughly and put octopus in a large pan. Cover completely with water and boil octopus until tender. Drain water and put cooked octopus in serving bowl.
Finely chop the onion and parsley and add to the octopus. Add the oil and white wine vinegar plus salt and pepper to taste. Allow to marinate for about an hour before serving.
Great as an appetizer, starter or lunch!
