Octopus salad is a tasty appetizer typical of Mediterranean cuisine, widespread especially in the regions of Southern Italy. Prepared mainly in summer, accompanied by a nice glass of chilled white wine, it can also be used as a second dish if potatoes are added.

INGREDIENTS

800 g octopus
2 garlic cloves, one whole and one diced
1 lemon
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
1 Tbsp white wine
2 Tbsp parsley, steams removed, coarsely chopped
Salt
Pepper

Directions

  1. Flavor a large pot of lightly salted water with wine, garlic, and juice from 1/2 lemon; bring to a boil
  2. Pound the octopus to tenderize it and wash it several times under running water
  3. When the water is boiling, add the octopus and cook for about an hour or until it's tender
  4. In the meantime, prepare a marinade with parsley, diced garlic, remaining lemon juice, salt, pepper and extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
