Grilled Octopus




  1. Pre-heat the grill. Turn all burners on high or if using charcoal assemble charcoal on one side of the grill.
  2. Rub octopus with olive oil and drizzle with salt and pepper.
  3. Grill octopus for 6 or 7 minutes per side. Don’t exceed 20 minutes or it will become too tough.
  4. Remove from grill and drizzle the juice of one lemon or lime over the top.
  5. Serve with pico de gallo and cilantro, if desired or use other garnishes of choice. One octopus makes a great appetizer to share, but if using as an entree, one octopus per person is recommended.
