⦁ Put the octopus in a bowl and add the soy sauce and honey, letting it marinate while preparing the hummus.
⦁ To make the hummus, mix the cooked chickpeas in the blender bowl with the Tahini, the juice of half a lime and a pinch of salt. Purée until obtaining a paste, then while blending add cold water until the paste becomes creamier. Put this in the pastry bag and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
⦁ Then plate the dish by making a rose of hummus on each spoon, on top of which we add a slice of marinated octopus. Then sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds, a splash of olive oil and top it off with a cilantro leaf and a little bit of spicy paprika.
Serve with a basket of pre-cut pita bread slices
