Octopus in Red Wine Vinegar

Slowly simmered in red wine vinegar, this octopus dish is good as meze or served with chunky bread as a main.


Chef: Stella Spanou

PREPARATION

Remove the eyes and mouth of the octopus and wash well under cold running water to remove any impurities and sand.

Place in a covered saucepan over low heat and simmer (without water) with the vinegar, clove and whole onion.

Once the octopus is tender, chop into largish chunks and place on serving platter, flavoring with olive oil, a drizzle of vinegar and a sprinkling of oregano.

This is the perfect ouzo snack.
