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.
