  1. Octopus
  2. We have to scare the octopus and immersing it in boiling water almost 3 times for ten seconds each time.The fourth time we left submerged in water. I boil it depending on the weight per kilo half an hour approx. My secret is that water should boil almost imperceptibly, just, over very low heat .
  3. Once you retire, let it cool to not move his skin. Then I cut it and reserve .
  4. Romesco sauce : I put the peeled and roasted peppers , roasted tomatoes , peeled and roasted garlic , peeled and toasted hazelnuts , salt and pepper . and emulsified with a mixer with olive oil . It is a red and creamy sauce.
  5. On the other hand I smash the potatoes and put them to fry in oil until golden brown.
  6. Then I turn on the fire , use a flat iron and dispose the oil and the octopus tentacles , I put them above other well hot plate and leave until they start having a golden colour.
  1. Assembling the dish : Romesco Sauce
  2. I pait the dish withe the romesco sauce , the crispy potatoes with sea salt, golden brown octopus tentacle , Greek olives, a blade of Spanish paprika , chopped parsley and a thin thread of an excellent olive oil.
