Preparation of octopus in an air fryer

  2. Take a container sufficient to contain the quantity of octopus available.
  3. Cut it into medium-sized pieces and put it in a container for marinating.
  4. Add extra virgin olive oil, parsley and garlic. It will be necessary to keep it marinating for at least twenty minutes.
  5. Once the octopus has been marinated, turn on the air fryer.
  6. Place the octopus in the fryer basket and set cooking for 40 minutes at a temperature of 180°C.
