Htapothi Ingredients
Order Quantity Ingredient Alternative Notes
5 Clove Garlic   Finely chopped 
4 Whole Lemons   Squeezed 
1 Whole Octopus    
3/4 Cup Oil ( Olive )    
1 Tablespoon Oregano    
1-2 Pinch Pepper   To taste 
2-3 Pinch Salt   To taste 
1 Cup Vinegar ( Red Wine )    
Htapothi Directions
Beat the octopus with a hammer or against the concrete to soften it up. This may take 15 minutes or more.

Cut and clean the octopus into pieces about twice the size of a serving because the meat will shrink when cooked.

It might be an idea to marinate the octopus over night in the vinegar, a 1/4 cup of olive oil, the garlic, some oregano, salt and pepper.

To cook, warm the BBQ to low-medium heat and lay on the meat.

Baste with a mixture of the remaining olive oil, the juice from the lemons, and the oregano, being careful not to cause a flame to erupt in the BBQ.

When cooked, pour the remaining basting mix over the removed octopus and serve.
