Grilled octopus from start to finish

Prepping for a seafood starter for BBQ lunch tomorrow. Can’t wait for char grilled squid, octopus and green prawn salad. I braised a whole raw octopus in a stock of onion, carrot, bay leaf, Lemons and salt. It goes into the pot looking like an alien and comes out 1 and a half hours later blushing and tender – and ready to go into a bath of olive oil, garlic and fresh chilli, which it soaks up to stay tender and moist. Tomorrow for lunch it will hit a super-hot char grill for intense flavour.
