Main Dishes

Whether your hunger is for seafood or savory meats, Portuguese cooking will satisfy it. Fish fillets, simply pan-fried then drizzled with tangy garlic vinegar sauce we call “molhanga” /escabeche” (depending on the region), will have you wanting more. From the marinaded fish, grilled sardines to the wine-flavored clams and fishermen’s stew, the recipes will lead to the soul-comforting braises of beef, pork and poultry, recipes for homemade linguiça, and rabbit stew. In Portuguese Homestyle Cooking, you will also find great recipes from the mainland or its Azorean islands in the Atlantic that include roasted potatoes, and legumes, fresh cheese, homemade bread and much more.
