    threeovens's Note:

    This dish is named for the traditional pot it is cooked in. This version contains not only 2 kinds of fish, but shrimp, mussels, and clams as well. Traditionally, it is a thick stewed chock full of seafood. We prefer it more like a soup, hence the optional vegetable broth.

      Greetings from Portugal, congratulation on your receipe, its exactly the way I always do it, for the exception of the veggie broth, we very rare add that and if so just about 1cup will do just fine. The fresh cilantro just gives it the perfect touch. Nice to see others enjoying our Portuguese food!! Thank you for posting.

      I have been making a lot of food lately using recipes from this site, and, while most dishes were good, I did not feel compell to write a review until now. This is absolutely amazing and so easy to make too. I didn't even know there was such a thing as Portuguese fish stew until today. I saw your recipe and checked my fridge. I had shrimp and two packages of frozen white fish. I didn't have sfarron but I had turmeric powder. Made this dish under an hour and it pleased everyone in the family--including a picky mother who usually eats nothing besides Vietnamese food. Thank you so much for posting this recipe!
