In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, smoked paprika, garlic powder, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper to create the marinade.


Clean the baby octopus and pat them dry with paper towels.


Place the baby octopus in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them. Ensure each octopus is well coated. Let them marinate for 15-20 minutes.


Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.


Grill the baby octopus directly on the grates for 5-7 minutes per side, or until they are fully cooked and have a slightly charred appearance.


In a small bowl, mix together melted butter, minced garlic, chopped fresh parsley, lemon zest, and salt to create the lemon garlic butter drizzle.


Brush the grilled baby octopus with the lemon garlic butter drizzle during the last 2 minutes of grilling.


Carefully remove the BBQ Baby Octopus from the grill and transfer them to a serving platter.


Serve the grilled baby octopus hot, drizzled with extra lemon garlic butter, and garnish with fresh parsley.

Tips for this recipe
