Method:

Octopus:

  1. Add all ingredients except for the octopus into a pot of water and bring to the boil. Once boiling add your octopus bring back to the boil and then reduce to a simmer
  2. Cook until tender, it should take about 25 to 30 minutes. Once cooked take out a chill until needed

Nduja Glaze:

Burnt Aubergine:

  1. Cut your eggplants in half lengthways before scoring the flesh of your eggplant with your knife lightly. Then rub in the olive oil and spices and season generously with salt
  2. Grill over fire, start of first on the flesh side and cook for about 5 minutes before turning it over and cooking the rest of the way on the skin side for a further 20 minutes over a medium heat

To Serve:

  1. To finish toast your bread butter it generously and top with your eggplant, octopus and glaze
