My Portuguese Kitchen | Arroz de Marisco

arroz de marisco

Lately, I've been surrounded
by beautiful, inspiring food.
These past few days,
we got talking with passionate
food loving shop owners.

We peaked at the Cambridge food scene.
Eat Cambridge, certainly did lay it out.
And what an amazing array
of our local pantry, it was.

Also, one of my CAKES made it to the
Norfolk Street BAKERY Stall!
And I'm pretty chuffed at that...

It all got me thinking 
of My Portuguese Kitchen!

Arroz de Marisco, to be precise...
It's Portuguese Seafood rice,
and can I just say, 
It has to be top on that list.

The rules of this dish?

Everyone needs to be at the table, 
as it is served pipping hot,
straight off the burner,
still with plenty of liquid, 
almost a soupy consistency.

With a final sprinkle of
freshly chopped coriander
or parsley if you like to bend the rules!!!

    OMG! This so recalls the foods I used to eat at my Gramma’s when we visited their dairy farm on summer vacations!! (My mother’s parents immigrated from the Azores in the early 1900s). It also reminded me that, as a child, I looked forward to Easter because Gramma would send us a box full of her special goodies. I remember a big loaf of sweet bread braided with an egg (still in the shell) on top, lengths of linguisa, and (her specialty), a jar of strawberry jam she had put up the previous summer…there was always a big can of abalone, too–because my mother loved it, and abalone was scarce in northern Montana.

    I’m so glad you stopped by My Favorite Things this morning. It lead me to you and to the childhood memories your blog brought back to me. I think I’ll go see if I can find Gramma’s recipe for sweet bread–my mother left me a box of recipes she loved. Many of them are in *her* mother’s handwriting. (a little hard to read, but she was so proud of learning to read and write English so she could become an American citizen).
