1 octopus
5 cloves finely
chopped garlic
1 cup vinegar
3/4 cup olive oil
4 squeezed lemons
1 tablespoon oregano
salt and pepper to taste


Beat the octopus with a hammer or against the concrete to soften it up. This may take 15 minutes or more. Cut and clean the octopus into pieces about twice the size of a serving because the meat will shrink when cooked. It might be an idea to marinate the octopus over night in the vinegar, a 1/4 cup of olive oil, the garlic, some oregano, salt and pepper. To cook, warm the BBQ to low-medium heat and lay on the meat. Baste with a mixture of the remaining olive oil, the juice from the lemons, and the oregano, being careful not to cause a flame to erupt in the BBQ. When cooked, pour the remaining basting mix over the removed octopus and serve.
