Galician Style Octopus / Pulpo a la Gallega

Versión en Español

As with most seafood dishes, its preparation is quite simple and most of the taste comes from the octopus and so its freshness is very important.

Once again, I have turned to Don Armando Scannone´s books for guidance and not only did I learned how to cook the dish I also learned how to clean an Octopus! The very first time I ever cleaned an Octopus and I managed to do so following his advice! Thanks again Don Armando! Continue reading

In my opinion, it is incredibly versatile; I can have it anytime (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack) and warm or cold. It is a party favorite too! Especially when prepared in smaller individual portions. Continue reading
