extra virgin olive oil
sheets of aluminium
Rinse the octopus under cold running water and place it as it is in a large bowl. Add the oil, balsamic vinegar, bay leaf, garlic and oregano and combine all ingredients well
Spread the sheets of the aluminium foil cross wise on a working surface. Place the octopus in the centre and pour over the marinade.
Fold the aluminium foil over the octopus but leave it loose so the air can circulate. Bake it for 1h and 15-30 minutes at 180°C and serve.
