Octopus Salad with sausage vinaigrette, potato and orange
1-2-4 lb. octopus (I like the ones from Spain)
1lb peanut or fingerling potatoes
1lb Fennel sausage (sweet or hot) ground
3 bunches Frissee cleaned and rinsed
1 1/2 cups Orange juice
Pinch red pepper flakes
Red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp. cumin
Fill pot with water and add salt until the water tastes like the ocean bring to a boil and add octopus and two corks from a wine bottle to the water. Place the potatoes also in salted water and cook until soft and cool in the fridge. Saute your sausage in a sauté pan until cook through and set aside. Meanwhile place your oj, cumin and pepper flakes in a small sauce pot and reduce until the oj is the consistency of syrup and set aside to cool.
Heat a skillet on high heat when hot add olive oil and a pich of salt to the oil and place the octopus in the sauté pan and brown on all sides, you can brown you potatoes and heat the sausage at the same time. In a small mixing bowl put the vinegar, oil and reduced oj and mix well. Toss frissee, potaotes, olives, and sausage together and dress the salad place on plates and slice your octopus and place on top and drizzle a little more dressing on the octopus and serve.
