How to make this OCTOPUS, MONKFISH AND SHRIMP SALPICON?
The octopus is a shellfish exquisite and highly demanded with a large number of followers, although it must be recognized that in recent years its price has skyrocketed. However, we can always buy those pieces that have a lower price because they are missing a leg or a piece of leg and that is just as useful for making salpicón. In any case, we are not going to fool ourselves, this dish does not use cheap ingredients, it is a recipe for a special day or an important celebration.
Remember that if you buy fresh octopus you have to freeze it 48 hours before cooking it.
Can you do it with frozen monkfish? yes, you can make this recipe with frozen monkfish.
Of course, it is very important that you use a vinegar and an oil of those that are remembered, in the salpicón we consume it raw and it is the basic dressing of this dish, it is very noticeable and it enhances the dish if you use a good one.
Put a good starter At a special lunch or dinner, it prepares the diner for a truly celebratory menu. Depending on the number of diners, the date in question and the tastes of our guests we can both enjoy a prawn cocktail as a octopus and shrimp salpicon, or the most coveted of salty arms, the twinkle arm

You can put crab sticks, the purists will raise their hands to their heads thinking that you have committed a sacrilege, but the sticks help to "make more dishes", they are cheap and they are delicious, so I leave it to your choice.
I do NOT like to put boiled eggs in this sauce, but if you "need" to fill with more ingredients, don't hesitate, go ahead and put 3 or 4 well-chopped boiled eggs.
The same thing happens with the peppers, I don't like to find tons of raw peppers, that's why I have put 1/4 of each, taking into account that they are quite large, it seemed to me that I had more than enough but if they are in your house unconditional fan you can put more, you know you should always adapt the recipes to your liking.
It is convenient to prepare the salpicón a few hours before serving it, so we make sure that the flavors mix well.
