Octopus Vegetables Salad


Story of an Octopus….

Raw Octopus is not one of the prettiest fish, cephalopods, that you see in a fish market….this gray floppy suction cupped monster when cooked, turns into the most delicious tender just with a touch of resistance cephalopods that you will eat.


There are so many recipes for the Octopus from the most classic one with potatoes to a more gourmet style terrine. Enjoy it grilled, as a pasta sauce, in a risotto or the way that I really like it…in a salad. Simple, full of flavors and light.

Spaghetti alle Vongole Spaghetti with Clams


What clams make you think about? I think of summer, beautiful white beaches, family time and so on…the list is endless….



Yesterday I was in a mood for spaghetti all vongole and was super lucky to find this at the fish market. Husband was even more happy, is been asking for this dish for a while. It is such an easy and fast pasta to prepare.



For me, spaghetti alle vongole has to be white no tomato sauce, just simple clams saute’ with garlic, white wine, parsley and chili flakes.


And here it is in all is glory Spaghetti alle Vongole ready to be enjoyed.
