    Coasty's Note:

    I have always liked Greek pickled octopus but didn't realise it was easy to make. I got this recipe from a class I attended at the Sydney Fish Market Cooking School. If you can't find a pre bashed octopus you can do this using a wooden rolling pin and belting the octopus about 30-40 times (advice from the fishmonger) I suggest doing it outdoors!

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    jars

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      If you can buy cleaned octopus you can skip the next stage.
    2. 2
      Gut the octopus and peel the skin from the octopus. Remove the beak (it is located at the top of the legs).
    3. 3
      Place the octopus in large pan with 1 cup water. Cook over medium/low heat. The octopus will give off a lot of liquid but check ocassionally that there is still enough liquid in the pan.
    4. 4
      Cook for about 1 -1 1/2 hours. Test with a skew, it should easily pierce the flesh.
    5. 5
      Remove from pan and allow to cool slightly or cool enough to handle.
    6. 6
      Slice tentacles into 3cm lengths and body into pieces.
    7. 7
      Mix up the dressing ingredients. Check dressing that it is not too vinegary as vinegar strenght is so variable.
    8. 8
      Pack the octopus in the sterlised jars and pour over the marinade.
    9. 9
      Let sit in the refrigerator for 5 days before eating.
    10. 10
      Serve as part of meze.

      This is a basic pickled octopus recipe. To avoid the long cooking time (it's HOT here now), I used my pressure cooker for 20 minutes. Cleaned and packed into 2 jars, covered with olive oil and added garlic and vinegar. Used oregano instead of lemon thyme. Thanks.
