Grilled Octopus & Potatoes

How to make Grilled Octopus and Potatoes.

This dish is similiar to the Galician style octopus recipe but done in a completely diferrent way. If you make these types of octopus dishes I recommend getting yourself a clean jar with holes for sprinkling and mixing the sweet and hot paprika together, half and half, it just makes things so much easier! If I remember correctly, this is what they do at the local ferias in Galicia.


  • 6 Octopus pre-cooked legs
  • 500g Potatoes
  • Spanish sweet and/or hot paprika
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt


  1. Wash and peel the potatoes and slice them into 1cm pieces.
  2. Add the potatoes to a pot with boiling water for 15 minutes.
  3. Let them cool down.
  4. Chargrill the legs in a greased and heated griddle pan until it browns a little.
  5. Do the same with the potatoes.
  6. Cut the legs of the octopus in trasversal slices and about 1.5 cm thickness.
  7. Put the potatoes on a plate, octopus on top, add the salt, paprika and olive oil.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
