So no potatoes or his much beloved rice is on the menu, but once in a while I have to relent.
On Friday we went past a fish shop that had an amazing choice of frozen fish and we bought 2kg of octopus, something I don't easily find in my shopping area.
It would be for Saturday's dinner, and my husband suggested I make an Octopus salad, but that's very much a summer dish for me, so I suggested "Polvo a Lagareiro" - Grilled Octopus and potatoes in olive oil - just the right recipe for the colder nights we're having.
Since it would be a special dinner I invited our son and daughter in law to dinner, and they were surprised that we were having real potatoes and not a "potato substitute" like cauliflower.
Try it out, I'm sure you will love it, even though you might think octopus is weird.
- 2 kgs frozen octopus (mine were just the long tentacles, all cleaned)
- 2 onions
- 2 bay leaves
- 1 kg small potatoes
- 5 or 6 garlic cloves
- Parsley or coriander
- olive oil (plenty)

No bake Cheesecake with a berry syrup. Yummi!!
Here is the link for the recipe - I made my syrup with raspberries instead of blueberries.
Note - I used powdered stevia as a sweetener and used less quantity in both the cheesecake and the syrup.
