The steps in our Mediterranean style octopus carpaccio recipe are not as difficult as they may sound. Follow them closely and you will be able to get wonderfully thin slices of cooked octopus, just like the experts. If you have a ham slicer, make use of it, otherwise a mandolin or a sharp knife will work also. According to the pros, the thickness of the final slices should be between 1-4 mm, and to achieve this it is important to make sure the octopus is compressed in the bottle as tightly as possible and left to cool in the fridge for at least 24 hours.
