    This one is all about the marinade. The lemon-garlic-salt combination is what works.

    The preparation method and overnight marination made the fairly average baby octopus I was cooking super succulent! I was serving with a few other dishes so served over salad with grilled vegetables at the side which worked great as well although I'm sure the rice would be the best match when cooking as a single course.
