Grilled Octopus with Baby Potatoes, JP Pimentón Olive Oil

Octopus is a common dish within the Mediterranean; and with my Pimentón infused Olive Oil, this is a fantastic way to enjoy a Spanish speciality.


Put plenty of water in a big saucepan, add the bay leaf, garlic, carrot and bring to the boil then add the octopus and simmer it about 45-50min.

Once it is cool, you can chop up the octopus into bite-size pieces.

Remove the vegetables and herbs from the octopus water and let the water cool.

Once it’s cold, add the potatoes. Boil until tender – about 15 minutes. Drain and, when they are cool enough to handle, cut them into thick slices.

Put in a wooden or large plate, sprinkle on top of it and the olive oil.

Serve with the potatoes.
