Why not try?

1
Clean and section the octopus (or get your fishmonger to do it for you) and wash it well
2
Place the octopus into a pan with the bay leaf and onion. Cover with water and bring to a simmer. Simmer for around 45 minutes until tender. Check this by inserting a fork or toothpick into the thickest part of the flesh. If its tender and soft it's cooked to perfection.
3
Meanwhile make the dressing: mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, chillies, salt and pepper
4
Once cooked, let the octopus cool in the liquor. When cool drain and reserve the onion from the water. Slice the octopus into 1cm pieces.
5
Toss the octopus and onion with the dressing and serve
