- Wash the octopus very well under cold water.
- Bring a pot of water to boil and once the water is boiling, put the octopus in the water.
- Let it cook for a few minutes. Once it turns red, remove the octopus from the hot water and rinse it under cold water.
- Cut the octopus in pieces of about 1".
- Add the EV olive oil and the juice of the lemons.
- Add salt and peperoncino to taste. Toss and put in the fridge for about 2 hours.
- Garnish with fresh parsley and serve cold.
If you cannot find octopus, fresh calamari is a good substitute!
