Hooo, almost forgot to post something today. This is what's happening. I'm finally gonna get to use the baby headgear that I've been making! I have a baby shoot (GIRL!!) scheduled in a couple of weeks. Only thing is Jose Roces, the awesome photographer who let me tag along with him on a few shoots awhile back, wants to buy a bunch of my stuff! So now I gotta get crackin' and make more! Holy moly!
Anyway, this was super, super ono. The taste was kinda unexpected . . . more Mediterranean than Oriental.
1 lb. baby octopus, thawed Wooden bamboo skewers, soaked in water 30 minutes
Marinade: 1/4 c. olive oil Juice of 1 lemonZest of 1 lemon 2 t. salt 1 T. black pepper 1 T. dried oregano1 T/ sriracha 1/2 t. ground clove 3 garlic cloves, mashed
Place marinade ingredients with octopus into a ziplock bag. Marinate overnight. Massage it every now and again (this process helps tenderize octopus). Skewer and grill over charcoal until cooked through. Serves 6-8.
