GREEK BBQ OCTOPUS

Recipe By Seafood Crate

Greek BBQ octopus is something that you can make a huge splash with. This recipe is all about creating a wonderful charred, smoky, crispy exterior covered in the holy trinity of Greek cooking–garlic, lemons and olive oil. And we haven’t even started on the tender, meaty interior!

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1-2 octopus tentacles
  • 1 bayleaf
  • A few sprigs fresh parsley
  • 1 lemon halved
  • 2 tbs salt + a pinch of salt
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbs red onion, finely diced
  • A pinch of dried chilli flakes
  • Pita bread

DIRECTIONS 

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a simmer and gently braise the cleaned octopus tentacles for about 30 minutes or until they are ‘fork tender’. Remove, drizzle olive oil over the octopus, and let cool. This step can be done the day before.
  2. Pan Fry – in a smoking hot frying pan add a little olive oil and place the tentacles in it – don’t move teem around too much; just turn them over after a couple of minutes to sear all sides then remove from heat.
  3. Get the barbecue super hot, oil the grate so the octopus tentacles don’t stick and grill for a few minutes on each side. Remove from the grill when they get crispy and blackened on the outside.
  4. Cut octopus tentacles to your preference. ie. cutting into 3 inch long pieces at an angle. Then make the dressing by combining the crushed garlic, juice of half lemon, a pinch of salt, chilli flakes, red onion and olive oil together (pop into a jar and give it a good shake) and then pour over the crispy octopus to coat and then transfer to a clean plate to serve.
  5. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve with some toasted pita.

TIPS AND TRICKS 
  • You can lightly dust the octopus in flour to make it really crispy. But use more oil if you do this as it can lead to uncooked patches here and there. It’s best to use a shallow pan to fry in this case.

First order, excellent products, very impressive

After I placed the order, Baz the manager called me personally to confirm & make sure my order is correct & if I'v any questions, excellent way to connect with his customers, he delivered personally all the way to my downtown condo...nice gentleman! You can track the delivery on the GPS app came with delivery notice in ur cell, so no need to stay home & worry if u gonna missed ur delivery. The order was packed in a strong cardboard box with top, bottom & 4 sides insulation wrap in plastic with pieces of ice in a plastic bag on top to keep my order fresh, the best insulated delivery box I even received. My order is fresh, excellent high quality tasty salomn & tuna Sashimi...I'd it for dinner, nothing else, very filling & satisfying...it was awesome because I ate all of it...lol, yummiest. I haven't try the salmon roe, rainbow trout & the crab meats, planning to stir fry with egg whites & green onion like an omelette, probably steam the trout Chinese style with salmon roe on top, over all 5 stars × 2 to: customer care service, packaging, delivery with a tracking app so u wouldn't missed ur delivery, excellent high quality products, u can't ask for anything more...highly recommended.

Happy Campers

We love seafood and Seafood Crate has given us such a huge opportunity to buy our seafood sustainably while enjoying such a huge variety.
Even my 17 year old son can't wait for the Crate to arrive so he can make himself Lobster Macaroni and Cheese (not a bad after school snack I'd say.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Excellent Seafood

This was some of the best seafood I have had. My whole family loved the quality and freshness.

excellent service and great quality food

your seafood is fresh well packed.i really look forward to every meal the scallops were really nice...…….

Everything I have ordered has been great but especially the crab. No shell bits, just good meat.

I was just trying to say that I loved your crab. I have enjoyed all of your products but this was superior to any crab meat I have bought anywhere else
