Galician Octopus

Ingredients:

  • 1 kg Octopus
  • 500g Potatoes
  • Olive oil (necessarily)
  • Hot Chili
  • Sweet Boya
  • Pepper
  • Salt

 

Steps:

  2. If it is not boiled, let it in the refrigerator to thaw then boil in cold water without salt.
  3. Boil it for an hour and a half then remove it and cut the tentacles into slices of about 5mm thick and the top part into equal pieces.
  4. Put it on a shallow dish and pour over olive oil, spicy and sweet paprika, pepper and salt. It should be well salted and spicy enough.
  5. Boil the potatoes for about 15 minutes.
  6. Serve with fresh bread.
