Clean the Octopus and hound with a rolling-pin to tenderise. Roughly chop into chunks in the desired size.

Boil the octopus, in salted water, to tenderise further (about 10 minutes).

When tender, drain and discard the water

Use a large saucepan and drizzle some coconut oil in and add the cooked Octopus. Place over medium heat and toss to coat the octopus with the oil.
