Grilled octopus, baby fennel, lemon and cumin salt
( SERVES 4 )
Baby octopus are often available fresh but use frozen if you can't find any. When grilled on the barbie, their tentacles become deliciously crispy with juicy and tender bodies, quite a different experience from chewing on a squid ring.
