I first tried baby octopus about ten years ago. From memory it was after seeing it in a delicious magazine while having my tyres changed. At the time we were right into experimenting with food and challenging ourselves in the kitchen. Actually that very magazine is probably attributable for establishing my love of cooking. Thank goodness the tyre man gave it to me! The picture spoke summer. You can cook this dish up as a side for tapas or add it to a salad like we did on Sunday night. Personally I think calamari is way over rated compared to these tasty molluscs.

P.S. Cook the kilo! We wish we had.
