    I love octopus and thought this recipe sounded amazing. Have not tried this yet but wanted keep a copy so decided to store it here on Zaar. Prep and cooking time does not include time to marinate.

      Nice recipe. We used fresh, finely sliced chili instead of the sauce. I think it needed about 4 hours of marinating as it was a bit tough still.

      This is a really great recipe. I too used frozen, cleaned baby octopus, allowing them to thaw in the marinade overnight in my fridge. The key is a really hot grill - you want them to cook very quickly and have a nice char, but pull them off before they get rubbery. Even my 4 year old liked these - hot sauce and all!

      These were deliciously lemony and nicely balanced between chewy and tender. Couldn't wait for a plate -- we snatched them off the grill and ate them right then and there! (Especially the crunchy tips.)
