This easy recipe is sure to become a favorite for backyard gatherings. The fully cooked octopus and chorizo sausage make it quick to prepare, and the classic Mediterranean flavor pairing is even better with the smoky char from the grill.
RECIPE Preparation
  1. Cut the octopus into 1-inch pieces. Slice the chorizo into ½-inch sections. Cut the red onion and red pepper into pieces of similar size.
  2. In a bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, red wine vinegar, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Adjust the seasoning according to your taste.
  3. Place the octopus, chorizo, red onion, and red pepper in the marinade. Mix well to coat the ingredients evenly. Let them marinate for about 1 hour.
  4. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  5. Thread the marinated octopus, chorizo, onion, and red pepper onto 4 large skewers, distributing them evenly.
  6. Rub the grates with olive oil. Place the kebabs on the grill, rotating them to char on all sides every couple of minutes. Baste the kebabs with the extra marinade while grilling.
  7. Cook for approximately 6-8 minutes, or until the octopus and chorizo are heated through and the vegetables are done to your liking.
  8. Remove the kebabs from the grill, slide them off the skewers, and serve on a platter, garnished with fresh chopped parsley.
