Cambio di stagione (Insalata di polpo e patate)

Per quanto mi renda conto che quello passato è stato un inverno secco, che c'era bisogno di pioggia e di maltempo, non vedevo l'ora che arrivasse l'estate. Dopo una primavera che non è stata primavera, l'arrivo dei primi caldi mi ha enormemente confortata e rigenerata, mi ha ridato forza ed energia e, perchè no, pure un po' più di verve in cucina.
Per mesi ho anelato fresche insalate, risi freddi e tenere verdurine crude e finalmente è arrivato il loro momento.
Approfitto delle torride temperature previste per rispolverare un intramontabile classico della cucina italiana: l'insalata di polpo e patate.
Fondamentale è la lunga cottura del polpo, onde evitare di ritrovarsi in bocca tentacoli gommosi; per il resto è una ricetta di una semplicità imbarazzante e di grande versatilità. Perchè se la base restano polpo e patate, il resto dei condimenti è assolutamente personalizzabile secondo il proprio gusto.
Questa resta comunque la mia versione preferita.



INSALATA di POLPO e PATATE

Ingredienti (per 3 persone):
1 grosso polpo (o due piccoli) da circa 1,2 kg
3 patate medie
un mazzetto di rucola
una manciata abbondante di capperi sotto sale
olive nere taggiasche (o al forno)
1 spicchio di aglio
succo di limone
1/2 bicchiere di aceto di vino
olio evo
sale
pepe nero (facoltativo)

Per prima cosa occorre lessare il polpo: portare a bollore abbondante acqua in una pentola capiente con mezzo bicchiere di aceto. Quando l'acqua bolle afferrare il polpo con delle pinze, immergerlo per un paio di secondi e poi tirarlo fuori. Ripetere l'operazione altre due volte, poi lasciarlo definitivamente immerso. Abbassare la fiamma al minimo, incoperchiare e lasciare sobbollire almeno 45 minuti (meglio un'ora). Una volta cotto, scolare il polpo, lasciarlo raffreddare poi spellarlo (operazione facoltativa, solo che a me la pelle non piace e preferisco toglierla) e tagliarlo a pezzetti.
Sbucciare le patate e tagliarle a tocchetti; cuocerle al vapore per circa 20 minuti, poi lasciarle raffreddare.
In una ciotola mescolare patate e polpo, poi aggiungere la rucola, ben lavata, asciugata e spezzettata a mano. Aggiungere anche le olive a piacere, lo spicchio di aglio sbucciato e tagliato a pezzetti e i capperi, precedentemente dissalati sotto acqua corrente e ben strizzati. Condire con sale, pepe nero appena macinato, un filo di olio evo e qualche goccia di succo di limone. Mescolare tutto e lasciare riposare in frigo almeno mezz'ora, in modo che l'insalata si insaporisca bene.
Servire fresca.
Buon appetito!


N.B.1: Aglio, capperi, olive e rucola sono facoltativi: come ho detto sopra, la base è polpo e patate, il resto si può variare a piacere. Si possono agiungere e/o sostituire ingredienti eventualmente con pomodorini, insalatine di vario tipo e, perchè no, magari impreziosire il tutto con dei gamberetti bolliti o dell'avocado a tocchetti.
N.B.2: Le patate possono anche essere bollite intere, poi sbucciate e tagliate a tocchetti. Personalmente le preferisco cotte al vapore: cuociono più velocemente e restano meno umide.

  6. A Gambling Experience Through the 2021 Play Online Satta King Game
    Have you ever considered playing the 2021 game on your computer? You may have seen the ads for it on TV and in magazines. The game is called Satta King. In case you don't know, Satta means pot. That makes the game of online gambling all the more interesting to me.
    What is exciting about sattaking? First of all, you never know what you are going to get. If you are playing a satta game, there are usually several pots to win. If you are trying to select the best bet Satta Bajar, the best bets are those that will produce the highest payout. It is very easy to lose money in satta because if you don't know when to stop, or how much to put down, you can spend too much on trying to hit the "sweet spot." That's why I love Satta Result.There are other types of online betting games that you can play on the Internet. Some of them are referred to as blackjack, craps, roulette, baccarat, poker, etc.
