  • 10 squid or octopus tentacles
  • Approx 200 ml Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade (10% of the squid weight)
  • 400 g small potatoes
  • Salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Dried oregano
  • 1 lemon
  • 2-3 sprigs parsley


Place the squid or octopus in a freezer bag with the Teriyaki Marinade. Seal the bag so that it is airtight and leave to marinate in the fridge for approx 30 minutes. Peel and halve the potatoes, then cook them for approx 20 minutes in salted water.

Heat up the oil in a pan. Fry the potatoes in the oil and set aside. Remove the squid or octopus from the marinade and cook on a griddle or under the grill.

Plate up the potatoes and grilled teriyaki squid or octopus, top with a sprinkling of oregano and garnish with lemon and parsley.
