Well Happy Monday To All!
Now someone else on this fine site deserves the credit for planting "the powerful seed of suggestion" (which prompted me to also go out this week and procure some octopus to eat) even though I sometimes devour such twice or thrice a week, as it was him mentioning it recently, that made me soooooooo crave some immediately!
And so, I extend a huge thanks his way, (if he wants to happily share his as well), as he most certainly got me excited enough to go find some ASAP! Thank you tons!!!
Meanwhile, here's my simple lunch therefore, from today....
I started out with the above mound of great rawness on a plate...
Mopping my mollusks through grapeseed oil, I put them on my grill grate and "MINI" smoker, with some apple wood chips and for about 25 minutes. (Still whole and "uncut").
The little guys just spring so erectly right up, as if Dracula in his coffin, once cooked, and so I did chop up all tentacles (and head)...
...and layered that over a mixed green salad, with lots of chopped raw garlic, oregano, and Fleur de Sel sea salt in the apple cider vinegar & olive oil dressing.
It was soft, and with smoky flavor and so much moistness, and simply out of this world!
OK, again, an enormous "thank you" to someone who made me quite hungry just from his speak! Hopefully he'll post his pics as well!
Meanwhile, happy new and very wonderful week to everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cheers! - Leah
