1
To begin, cook the octopus. Bring a large pan of heavily salted water to the boil and carefully add the octopus. Bring to a simmer and cook for 45–60 minutes, or until tender. Drain and allow to cool
2
Once cool enough to handle, carefully remove the legs. You can keep the head for use in other dishes, if desired
3
Make the picada by combining all the ingredients in a bowl. Set aside
4
To make the avocado cream, blend all the ingredients together until you have a very smooth texture. Taste and season with lime juice and salt. Place a sheet of cling film directly on the surface of the cream until ready to use to prevent discolouration
5
When ready to serve, sear the octopus legs on a very hot griddle pan until slightly crispy
6
Slice each tentacle into 3 or 4 pieces and season with flaky sea salt. Drain any excess liquid from the picada
7
To serve, add a swipe of avocado cream to each plate and sprinkle over some picada and diced kiwi fruit. Top with the pieces of octopus and garnish with the coriander cress, a pinch of paprika and a drizzle of olive oil
