– Portuguese Fish Stew slow cooked by Mr D in his Thermal Cooker – This Portuguese fish stew is normally made in a cataplana which is a Moorish designed copper domed dish. I have made mine in a thermal cooker which like the cataplana keeps the flavours in so they develop their intensity while cooking.
The Western Algarve style cooking includes potatoes, firm white seasonal fish, seafood, peppers and a hint of chilli.
Once served from the thermal cooker all that is needed is a spoon and some crusty bread to mop round the bowl.
