      Title: Oktapothi toursi - pickled octopus
 Categories: Seafood, Appetizers, Greek
      Yield: 8 servings
 
      1    Octopus (about 1 kg)
      1    Garlic clove; crushed
    1/2 c  Olive oil
    1/2 c  Vinegar
           Salt & pepper to taste
 
  Serves: 6-8 Cooking time: 45-60 minutes
  
  To clean octopus, pull of tentacles, remove intestines and ink sac.
  Cut out eyes and beak.  Remove skin and rinse well.  Place head and
  tentacles in a pan over low heat until it turns deep pink and is
  tender (about 45 to 60 minutes).  Drain and when cool enough to
  handle strip off suckers from tentacles if desired.  Cut head and
  tentacles into bite-sized pieces and place in a bowl.  Add garlic,
  olive oil, vinegar, salt if necessary and pepper to taste.  Mix well,
  cover and leave to marinate in refrigerator for 12 hours before
  using.  Stir occasionally.
  
  To serve, lift out of marinade, pile onto a dish, garnish with lemon
  wedges and parsley.  Supply cocktail picks for your guests'
  convenience.
