"Using “reverse engineering” I think I found out how mr. Pero, a.k.a. “Gardelin” is preparing this excellent meal. He also told me that you can use any kind of fish or crabs to prepare the same meal.

"This dish was very good. I made it with baby octopi (14) and a lb. of shrimp minus the black olives. Surprisingly it did not have an overpowering seafood taste. It is a great way to introduce timid eaters (what I call epicuriously challenged) to more exotic foods (at least different than chicken, beef, and pork). I cut the potatoes and onions very thin so the 30 minute cook time was sufficient. I also used green onions to add a little color. I applaud the author."
