Beautiful on a plate – amazing salad with octopus

Among all types of seafood, in my opinion octopus tentacles look the most intriguing on a plate. I buy octopus tentacles in a small fish shop where they are constantly on sale. They are boiled and chilled and actually ready to eat. We like them grilled with fresh French bread prepared "at once" just after shopping. This time I served them in a more decorative way. I served grilled parsley-garlic octopus tentacles with fresh lettuce and French toast. The salad was excellent and looked beautiful. I recommend it for a special occasion. Maybe it is a great idea for a light dinner on Valentine's Day.


Ingredients (for 2 people)
4 small octopus tentacles
4 fistfuls of mixed lettuce
a few cherry tomatoes
a few black olives
2 tablespoons of small capers or a few big capers
a lemon
marinade
4 tablespoons of olive oil
2 tablespoons of chopped parsley
1 teaspoon of chopped chili pepper
2 cloves of garlic (crushed)
salt and pepper


Mix the olive oil with the chopped parsley, chili pepper and garlic. Cover the octopus tentacles with half of the marinade and leave for 30 minutes. Mix the lettuce with the cherry tomatoes, olives and capers. Sprinkle with the rest of the marinade. Grill the octopus tentacles for a few minutes until they are nicely brown. Cut two slices from every tentacle. Leave the whole of the curled up ends of the tentacles. Arrange the octopus on the lettuce. Sprinkle with lemon juice.


Enjoy your meal!
