This is an easy and super tasty barbecue recipe using whole octopus legs, charred on hot embers and served with pan caramelised peaches and homemade black olive tapenade. The octopus pairs well with the sweet peaches and the tapenade brings depth to the dish. A lovely summer dish, perfect to start any barbecue.
