As promised in my last post about San Sebastian, I’m back with more food adventures to tell! This time, we’re diving into my time in Portugal. After we wined and dined ourselves in Spain, we decided to meet our good friends in Portugal, another country we hadn’t yet experienced. Last year it was Croatia and Vienna, which we absolutely loved.
My favorite thing about Portugal, besides how lovely the people were, was definitely the seafood. We ate it for lunch and dinner every day! We were overwhelmed with the freshest fish and crustaceans at every meal.
You really don’t see this variety of seafood at home!
Everything was so sweet and fresh, it barely needed anything besides a squeeze of lemon!
I kid you not, I must have eaten steamed clams for pretty much every meal. The clams are just so different there. They’re much juicier and have two heads!! Here’s a couple of photos and an easy recipe that was inspired by the amazing clams we had while we were over there.
This recipe is perfect for summer entertaining, plus it’s a fun way to bring your friends together! I’d love to hear about your favorite way to cook clams.
On another exciting note, it looks like I’ll be doing another cabaret show on September 19, so stay tuned for more details!
