About Portugese Food
Portuguese cuisine is fundamentally rich, filling
Baia de Cascais Frontage and full-flavoured, its dishes being closely
related to Mediterranean cuisine. The wide variety of spices used
was influenced by Portugal's former colonies. These spices include
piri piri and black pepper, cinnamon, vanilla and saffron. When
cooking meals, and flavouring them, olive oil is one of the main
ingredients. Widely used are garlic, coriander and parsley.
Portugal is a seafaring nation with a well-developed
fishing industry and this is reflected in the amount of fish and
seafood eaten. The country has Europe's highest fish consumption
per capita and is among the top four consumers in the world. Fish
is served grilled, boiled (including poached and simmered), fried
or deep-fried, stewed (often in clay pot cooking) or even roasted.
Foremost amongst these is bacalhau (cod), which is the type of fish
most consumed in Portugal. It is said that there are more than 365
ways to cook cod, one for every day of the year. Cod is almost always
used dried and salted. The simpler fish dishes are often flavoured
with virgin olive oil and white wine vinegar.
