1. In a medium pot over medium heat, add wine. Simmer until wine is reduced by two-thirds. 2. Heat oil a large, high-sided skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, green pepper, and garlic, and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Add cumin, oregano, and pepper flakes, and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add octopus pieces and cook until juices release, 1-2 minutes. Pour reduced wine into pan; scrape bottom of pan using a wooden spoon to dislodge any browned bits. Add the tomato paste and crushed tomatoes and enough of the octopus stock to cover by 1 inch; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and add the potatoes; gently simmer until tender, about 45 minutes. 3. Add cod and clams, and cook, covered, until clams have opened, 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately, with bread alongside, or the following day...it's even better.
