  • Now add the wine, half a cup of the boiling liquid of the octopus and half a cup of water.
  • Stir well and let it simmer for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  • Add water or boiling liquid if necessary. Be careful with the boiling liquid of the octopus.
  • It contains salt and using to much of it may turn the risotto salty.
  • Meanwhile cut the octopus into small rings. Chop the parsley.
  • Add both to the done risotto. Mix well and season with pepper.
