Eating amazing food on a sailboat - Fusilli al ragù di polpo ubriaco.
''Fusilli with drunken octopus in Bolognese sauce''
A rich, complete and appetizing dish for our guests.
Among the tastiest and most versatile fish, octopus is an excellent ingredient for preparing summer, fresh and dietary dishes thanks to the absence of thorns and ease of preparation. There are also many nutritional virtues of this ingredient and just as many methods of cooking and preparation.
Octopus, a valid ally for the diet: properties and benefits
Perhaps not everyone knows that octopus is particularly suitable for low-calorie diets. Suffice it to say that a 100 g portion provides only 57 kcal and that only 1.5% is made up of carbohydrates. Low in fat – about 1% of its weight – and rich in protein – in this case it is about 10% – octopus also provides a valid supply of calcium, potassium, phosphorus, iron, vitamins A and B1.
Thanks to the remarkable quality of connective tissue, this mollusk has the advantage of being a very satiating food. Despite the reduced amount of fat in its meat, octopus is also a decent source of good cholesterol: a 100g serving contains about 70mg, or 23% of the maximum recommended daily amount.
For these reasons it is the protagonist of this recipe of our onboard menu: Fusilli al Ragù di octopus drunk. Dish also rich in fiber because we use the least refined Italian pasta possible.
