Bummmmmmmmer

This is Memorial Day weekend although the REAL Memorial Day is May 30 (the blessed day of Lilac’s birth). Typically, this is the kickoff weekend in the ‘Burgh for summer fun. But, there is no fun to be found in the city tonight as the Penguins stunk out the joint in Detroit (Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals) and they didn’t need the help of the octupi that the lovely Detroit fans apparently toss onto the ice to celebrate their team.

The Deli believes that if each of its readers makes the following recipe tomorrow or Monday, perhaps the Pens might have a better Game 2….

Barbecue Garlic Baby Octopus (before they have a chance to turn into grown up Detroit Red Wings)
retrieved from: http://www.recipezaar.com/177288–an Aussie recipe

Ingredients
250 g baby octopus (about half a dozen)
1/2 cup water
1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 lemon

Directions
1 Bring water to boil in a small covered saucepan.
2 Place octopus in saucepan, cover and reduce heat to medium-high and cook for 10 minutes. This is a lazy way to steam / boil them.
3 Remove from heat and drain remaining water using the lid.
4 Add olive oil, garlic, parsely, oregano and squeeze the lemon over the top and mix together.
5 Place on pre-heated medium BBQ grill plate and cook around 2 minutes with the head facing down and around 5 minutes with the tentacles facing down.

Try flinging one of these puppies onto the ice rink surface…post digestion, of course!

On to GAME 2! Go PENS!!!
