Golden Potatoes and Herb-Marinated Octopus Delight

Ingredients

1 lb (450g) yellow potatoes, boiled and cut into bite-sized pieces
8 oz (225g) el Rey del Pulpo octopus, cooked and sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh parsley (or substitute with your preferred herb), chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat until it shimmers. Add the boiled yellow potatoes, which have been cut into bite-sized pieces. Cook them, stirring occasionally, until they turn a beautiful golden color and develop a satisfying crispness.
