About this recipe: Enjoy this traditional recipe from Malta which makes a very flavourful sauce for octopus with potatoes, tomatoes, red wine and a hint of citrus that can be served over spaghetti, or just on its own.
Excellent recipe!! Very easy to follow. I didn't have fresh mint but I put fresh basil instead - 04 Oct 2012

I was happy to find this recipe because I already had almost everything needed. The only things I had to change were to use some lime zest instead of lemon, frozen peas instead of canned, and omit the black olives. I also added some crushed red pepper and cayenne pepper for spice! I used twelve baby octopi and scaled this for two servings but it still made a lot, enough for a lunch tomorrow. I served it with whole wheat angel hair pasta. It was very delicious! My boyfriend was impressed with how tender the octopus was. Thanks! - 21 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
