Barbecued Baby Octopus


  • 20 baby octopus (cleaned and cut in half)
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Marinate the octopus in a non-metallic dish for a minimum of two hours, preferably over night.

Or, store in a puree of pawpaw flesh which has a remarkable tenderizing effect.

Drain and barbecue on a hot plate for two minutes.
