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!
