Try this Easy Greek-Style Grilled Octopus on the BBQ

A Greek seafood staple, octopus is sure to appear on the menu at any family event. I love the charred flavours of the octopus after it has been soaking in this delightful marinade. Finish this dish off with a drizzling of peppery olive oil, tangy white wine vinegar and lemon for the ultimate Greek dish! You can order octopus online today with Manettas Seafood Market and have it delivered to your door!
