Ceviche De Pulpo
Ceviche is popular in latin america and though many versions are made with raw fish that "cooks" in lime juice, octopus needs to be pre-cooked. However, the overnight marinating in lime juice does serve to further tenderize the octopus in addition to flavoring it. Some people like to add shrimp (raw or cooked) to this dish and it is also often served with tortilla chips. You can decrease the spice by reducing or removing the jalapeño. Spice can be increases by adding hot sauce and/or substituting the jalapeño for a hotter pepper, like the habanero. Another variante includes orange juice, which will increase the acid but also kicks up the sweetness of the dish.
