Portuguese Recipes


Portugal is a relatively isolated country in Europe, bordering only Spain. It is also a country with a long traditional of seafaring. The Portuguese cuisine reflects both of these aspects of the country, and is very different from that of other European countries.

Fish and seafood are both major and important parts of the Portuguese diet, but Portugal is also known for pork and salted cod. Additionally, Portuguese explorers and mariners brought back influences and spices from the New World, Africa, the Far East, and the East Indies, and these too form an important and exciting element of many Portuguese recipes.

Some popular Portuguese dishes include:
  • Fish and Shellfish - Thanks to Portugal's long maritime tradition, seafood is a popular and important element of the Portuguese diet. Seafood dishes include hake, horse mackerel (scad), lamprey, sardines (especially when grilled as sardinhas assadas), sea bass. Popular shellfish include crabs, lobster, octopus, scabbard. shrimp and squid.

  • Bacalhau - Bacalhau is salted cod - cod is usually eaten this way, because Portuguese traditional recipes date back to a time before the invention of refrigration. Theree are many different ways that bacalhau can be prepared - some people say that there is one recipe for every day of the year, but others claim 1,001.

  • Cozido á portuguesa - This is a traditional rich meat stew. The stew is made with meat (beef or pork most commonly, but sometimes chicken) as well as Portuguese smoked sausages, and a variety of vegetables such as cabbage, carrots, potatoes, rice and turnips.

  • Caldeira - This is stew made using a mixture of different types of fish (and sometimes shellfish). Potatoes, tomato and onion are also added, and the stew made be flavored with spices. There are different regional and personal preferences as to the choice of spices, but some common combinations include ground ginger and curry powder, or nutmeg and saffron, cloves, allspice with piri-pri.

  • Pastéis de nata - One of the most popular Portuguese desserts. Pastéis de nata are small creamy tarts.
