Less than thirty days ago I made some grilled octopus and it has been on my mind ever since. Then a few days ago Caterina made octopus using the pressure cooker so I had to give that a try. Results: passable. The slow poaching method is by far better but the quickness of the pressure cooker makes this an easy dish to prepare on the fly.
Grilling was not part of the plan today - well not actual charcoal grilling since I did put in the grill pan with a little oregano to smoky it up a bit. Results: passable. Nothing beats the real flavor of fire.
After the octopus was sufficiently cooked twice I chopped it up and tossed it with some garlic, chile, olive oil, more oregano some lime and a little salt and served it over rice. Results: delicious. Make yourself some octopus and if you have the time slow poach it and grill it.
