Definitely grill it--brush with a good olive oil.

Splash of fresh lemon juice when you serve the octopus. Serve a Village Greek salad--green pepper, tomato, cucumber, kalamatas, red onion, feta, sprinkle with Greek oregano and drizzle red wine vinegar and EVOO. Could add a simple orzo with a little butter and Ital. parsley OR orzo with roasted veggies would be healthier.

I usually braise octopus and then brush with olive oil and finish on the grill.

I usually braise octopus and then brush with olive oil and finish on the grill. I agree that a greek style salad goes with this.
