Step 1

In medium bowl, stir together olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano and crushed red pepper. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir octopus into marinade; let sit at about 15 minutes.

Step 2

Alternately thread octopus and chorizo onto 8 pre-soaked wooded skewers, allowing marinade to drip down onto chorizo; set aside.

Step 3

In medium bowl, stir together pomegranate, cucumber, red onion, jalapeño and cilantro until well combined. Stir in olive oil and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper; set aside.

Step 4

Heat grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Place skewers on hot, greased grill grates. Cook, flipping once, until chorizo and octopus are heated through and develop golden-brown grill marks, about 5 minutes. Transfer skewers to serving platter; top with reserved pomegranate salsa. Serve.
