Massa de pimentao forte is a pepper paste made with paprika, garlic and bay leaf (among other things). This version is mildly spicy, but you could as much piri-piri as you'd like to make it spicier. This is a staple that makes dinner easy- just rub a bit of the paste on a chicken, a steak, a pork chop, or a fatty flavorful piece of fish before roasting. It's also great tossed with potatoes and roasted!
This is an easy starter that combines two of my favorite ingredients- artichoke hearts, and clams! If you can't find Spanish preserved artichoke hearts, substitute canned quartered artichoke hearts. Posted for ZWT5
Adapted from Cooking Light, Jan/Feb 2012. Their recipe was very good, but I felt that it needed a few things, so this is my take on it. Still fairly light, but more flavorful. Their recipe says 4 servings of 1 cup each, but I got far more than that so I'm calling it 6 servings.
In the Catalonia area of Spain, Fava beans are paired with slivered jamon (cured ham) and fresh mint. According to The New Spanish Table, this salad was invented by Catalan chef Josep Mercader and is now copied all over Catalonia. If fresh fava beans are hard to find, shelled edamame may be substituted. Posted for ZWT 5.
There are many, many recipes for Sangria to choose from, depending on what you like in your glass. My husband has been making this one for years, in fact we served it at our wedding reception! As for the name- well, if you don't watch how much of this you drink, you'll understand the name the next morning. Don't use high end wine or brandy for this, any subtle flavors will be lost. Cook time is resting time in the fridge.

This lamb stew is full of hearty flavorful ingredients, sure to fill you up on a cool evening or after a hard day's work. This takes a couple of hours, plus marinating time; but is well worth the time invested!
Taken from The New Portuguese Table by David Leite http://leitesculinaria.com This is an easy and flavorful roast chicken, the potatoes cook in the same pan which makes cleanup easy! The red pepper paste called for in the original is recipe #483363 but if you want to use another pepper paste please do so. The timing will be different depending on your oven and how large your bird is.
