This is Venetian and Dubrovnik recipe from 16th century, also mentioned by Croatian writer from renaissance Nikola Naljeskovic. I put ocotpus as main ingredient because Zaar does not recognize cuttlefish as ingredient. Of course you can do it with squid and octopus but you have to cut octopus into small pieces.
