Hello Gena,

The menu for El Pollo Inka Peruvian Restaurant is here:  El Pollo Inka

This is a Peruvian restaurant chain, and the seafood ingredients in this dish might vary slightly according to availability. It is basically a seafood stir-fry, and is said to have Chinese-influenced origins. "Saltado de Mariscos" is a mixed seafood dish with French fried potatoes that is served with garlic rice. A similar dish is "Tallarin de Mariscos," which omits the French fries and is served with spaghetti instead of rice. 

These are the menu descriptions of these dishes:

Saltado De Mariscos: Sautéed fish, shrimp, squid, scallops, red onions, cilantro, tomatoes, green onions, and French fries. Served with garlic steamed rice.

Tallarin De Mariscos: Sautéed fish, shrimp, squid, scallops, onions, cilantro, tomatoes, red bell pepper, green onions, and spaghetti.

I did not have any success finding a recipe or a copycat recipe specifically for the El Pollo Inka recipe for "Saltado De Mariscos," but I did find a couple of generic recipes for the dish:

Peru Delights

Eat Wine Blog

The seafood ingredients may vary slightly from recipe to recipe. I saw octopus and mussels listed on some menus, and shrimp were omitted on another menu.

There is an aji verde sauce recipe here: Aji Verde Recipe

That Spanish Language video recipe that you mention is here, but it is beyond me to even attempt to translate it: You Tube

I will post this for reader input.
