Skewered Octopus

Kiwi fruit acts as a tenderiser in this tasty marinade for skewered baby octopus.

Serves 4 as a starter or part of a BBQ

Clean the octopus: hold the head firmly and cut through the flesh underneath the eyes. Pick up the tentacles, and with your index finger underneath, push out the beak and discard (alternatively, cut through back of head and clean inside by removing all organs).
Combine the remaining ingredients in a non-corrosive bowl. Add the octopus and leave to marinate, covered, for a 2 – 3 hours.
Thread three octopus onto each skewer – try to keep them flat. Cook over hot coals for about 5 minutes – time of cooking will depend on size.
