Instructions

1
In a large pot, add water, wine, 2 sliced lemons, onions, garlic, salt, bay leaves, and vinegar. Bring to a boil over high heat.
2
Add octopus, turn heat down to a simmer and allow to cook 45 minutes or until just tender (tentacles should feel soft when squeezed with tongs).
3
Remove to a bowl, drain liquid and cover octopus with a little ice until just cool enough to handle.
4
Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium-high or around 375º to 400ºF.
5
Cut remaining lemon, grapefruit and orange in half and place on grill. Dice octopus tentacles into approximately 1 to 2 inch pieces, and discard head and very center of octopus.
6
Grill octopus until slightly charred on all sides. Remove fruit from grill when nicely marked as well.
7
Place octopus in a serving dish and squeeze grilled citrus evenly over it. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
8
Chef's Note: To remove the beak of the octopus, gently press your fingers together at the very center underneath the octopus to pop beak out. Discard before cooking.
