Ingredients

Directions

Preheat barbecue or grill.

Place octopus in 4 quarts cool water and add 1 wine cork. Bring to boil and lower heat to low boil. Cook 25 minutes until tender. Drain and rinse and allow to cool. In a mixing bowl, stir together orange zest, almonds, 2 tablespoons olive oil, crushed red pepper and fennel leaves. Add cooled octopus and let stand 25 minutes until coals are hot and ready. Thread octopus evenly on to 4 skewers and place over coals. Cook until crispy and slightly charred, about 5 minutes per side. Meanwhile, toss beet greens with orange juice and remaining oil and season with sea salt. Divide greens among 4 plates and place one speidino over each pile. Drizzle with remaining marinade and serve.
