How long to boil an octopus??

NightfallPA | Dec 5, 2002 11:33 AM

I've seen recipes that say anywhere from 30-40 minutes to 2 hours for the same size mollusk. I have a 2lb thawed octopus. What's the best way to do this? Cut it up first? Just use the tentacles? I plan to saute it with garlic, olive oil, herbs and lemon juice when it's done boiling.

Thanks in advance for any info!
