Portuguese Grilled Sardines

Portuguese Grilled Sardines by ruth martins

It's barbecue time! It's barbecue time! Most people go for the traditional sausages, hamburgers, chicken thighs and legs. And if you're lucky, salmon! To me, real barbecues mean the smell of fresh fish and good quality meats. Ultimately, I starting missing Portuguese Sardines. They are the most traditional, most delicious…

Flame Grilled Mozambiquen Peri Peri Chicken

Flame Grilled Mozambiquen Peri Peri Chicken by Peter Brown

The best Portuguese style flame grilled chicken perfected in Mozambique on many fishing trips. It is a lot of hard work but fun and well worth the effort . Once tried it will become a firm favourite as a BBQ (BRAAI) The secret is in the way it is cooked. Its thirsty work so have plenty of beer on hand for the chef

Frango à Brás - Chicken with potato sticks

Frango à Brás - Chicken with potato sticks by Sofia Reino

This is a typical Portuguese recipe inspired by another (Bacalhau à Brás) I grew up with. Our family does not care much for chicken breast. We all go for the dark meat. So this is the perfect recipe to finish up that white meat no-one will eat. Another benefit is that the chicken breast of just on chicken will feed 4 to 5 people!
