Step 1 :In a covered saucepan place the octopus and bay leaf on a low fire to cook until it becomes very tender.

Step 2 :No liquid is required as the octopus will release its own liquid as it cooks down.

Step 3 :As soon as it is steamed and tender, increase the heat to high and add the dessert wine, cooking until it is glazed 4-5 min).


Step 1 :Bake the eggplants or roast them on top of the fire until cooked through (they will become slightly charred, soft and mushy).

Step 3 :Finely chop the octopus and add to the eggplant mixture.

Step 4 :Mix all the ingredients, adjust the seasonings if needed and enjoy.
