Smoky Chipotle Rub Skewered Octopus Tentacles

Octopus tentacles may seem a bit intimidating at first, but trust us, they're worth the adventure! These slimy, suction-cupped wonders of the sea are packed with flavor and texture that will make your taste buds do a happy dance. So, let's dive into the world of smoky chipotle rub skewered octopus tentacles and learn how to grill and chill like a pro!

Preparation Method: Coat and Skewer

Cooking Time: 3-4 minutes per side

Grill Temperature: Medium-high heat (around 375°F to 400°F or 190°C to 204°C)


  • 8 fresh octopus tentacles (preferably from a sea monster)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil (extra virgin, if you're feeling fancy)
  • 1 tablespoon of smoky chipotle rub (the secret to flavor town)
  • A squeeze of lemon juice (to add a zesty twist)
  • A pinch of salt and pepper (because seasoning is everything)


  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat (or summon the fire-breathing dragon in your backyard).
  2. Pat the octopus tentacles dry with a paper towel (no need to give them a spa day).
  3. In a bowl, mix the olive oil, smoky chipotle rub, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Give it a good stir, like you're mixing a magic potion.
  4. Brush the tentacles with the chipotle rub mixture, making sure they're coated in all their smoky glory.
  5. Skewer the tentacles (think of it as a fashionable octopus kebab) and place them on the preheated grill.
  6. Grill for about 3-4 minutes per side, until the tentacles are nicely charred and tender. Flip them with confidence, like a circus performer flipping pancakes.
