Recipe: Mark and Talia Kurlansky's Haitian Grilled Octopus

Monday, August 18, 2014

Talia's tips for this recipe: This octopus dish was thoroughly delicious. However, for it to be edible you have to make the octopus tender. You simply boil a pot of hot water and place the octopus inside, then you take the octopus out, cool it, poke it, and see if it’s tender enough to stick a fork through its body. The routine goes like this: boil then cool, boil then cool.
