Grilled Baby Octopus

Enter the uncomplicated combination of green chili, garlic, and juicy. The addition of parsley and rosemary lend their verdant freshness whilst conveniently seedless citrus makes for easy squeezing. Marinated in a generous amount of EVOO before being grilled over the coals, the baby octopuses take on a smoky sapidity, enhanced with a brush of rosemary and a drizzle of lemon.
