1 octopus or many baby octopus
Lemon juice
olive oil

Boil octopus until tender maybe 4-7 minutes depending on size. Don't over cook, it should be tender not rubbery.
Cut into bize sized pieces and cool. In a bowl combine olive oil, salt, lemon juice and chopped fresh parsley, taste. Marinate the octopus in the lemon mixture and serve room temperature.

Personal Notes:
We make this as an appetizer for Christmas Eve, for the "Feast of the Seven Fish". Baby octopus is more tender and cooks faster. Of course serve with Italian bread.
