Precook 1 kg of octopus, drain and cool. Cut it up into generous chunks. Beat 3 eggs, with a little milk salt and pepper to taste, and half a bunch of very finely chopped parsley. Coat the octopus pieces in the egg mixture and shallow fry in a little olive oil, turning them until are golden. Serve.

Makes 3 or 4 servings.
