For Salad:

Method

 

Stage -1 - Octopus

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a simmer.
  2. Add octopus, bay leaves, garlic , whole peppercorn and salt  and cover.
  3. Let the octopus simmer for about 30-45 minutes, or until tender but not over-cooked. To tell if the octopus is ready, use a tong to hold the tip of one of the piece and gently twist it—if it falls off easily, it's ready.
  4. Remove the contents from the pot, discarding the bay leaf, peppercorns and garlic, and rinse the octopus well with cold water.

 

Stage -2 - Salad

  1. Place the cooked octopus in a bowl.
  2. Add the parsley, onion, and lemon juice. Add the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Mix well, cover, and leave to rest for at least an hour in the fridge.
  4. Serve chilled, however preferably not straight out of the fridge
