Allow to cool octopus in the cooking liquid.

Sliced ​​thin, ring, red onion; to quench a little 'the very strong flavor it can sprinkle with coarse salt (a little) and just begins to soften very well rinse it under running water.

  • If you do not find a nice octopus at least a pound are also fine a couple of smaller octopuses; It will suffer a bit 'the final look ...
  • olives, peppers, potatoes, depending on who prepares it, may or may not be there.
    Those that are never lacking octopus, onions and tomatoes! I sometimes love to put a little 'of capers.
  • burnet. Often I substitute parsley with burnet, or enrich it with this herb.
    There's a reason: in summer and winter, in my garden, burnet grows lush while parsley much less!
  • here this dish is served as a main course;
    wanting to serve as an appetizer, along with other things, you just prepare the plates, possibly decorated with a leaf of lettuce on the bottom, for the table.
