Octopus- A Fishy Question

Salbert Dec 15, 2011 07:42 AM

Typically I boil an octopus for about 1-2 hours-- then coat it in Garlic, Olive Oil, S&P and throw on the grill for about 3-5 minutes... delicious-- like I am back in Greece... I want to cook this on Christmas Day- but have so many other great smells in the kitchen that I was thinking of boiling it on Saturday and then putting in the fridge (heck it is cooked right?) then Sunday just grilling-- do you all think this is a NO- NO since it is seafood?

    It's a yes-yes. It's cooked, you're using it the next day, it will be fine.
