More Iberian Peninsula

The Cuisine of Portugal

Today we explored the flavors of one of the greatest seafaring cultures in history: Portugal.

Cuisine features seafood in many forms, as well as the pork sausage known as linguica.
Portuguese Mussel Broth
Salt Cod Fritters
Salt Cod Salad
Camorones en Salsa Verde
Arroz Doce
Portuguese cuisine typically uses more herbs and spices than Spanish cuisine, based, I would surmise, on their long-term sea trade with spice producing nations to the East.
