      Excellent dish. The crucial thing is not to cover the ingredients; we used 1/4 cup olive oil, and then, five minutes later, 1/2 cup of champagne. It bubbled up over the ingredients, turning yellow with saffron. We didn't add water, so some of the potatoes and fish steamed rather than boiled.

      Thought this dish was great. Very filling. Not sure if that was all due to the potatoes. I used a variety of fish (whatever variety i found at the store) the blend of saffron and wine was excellent, would recommend this dish to everyone.

      We loved this... it's an excellent recipe where things can be added for personal taste. DH, although he liked it as it was, said that he fancied Garlic in it next time and more wine LOL, for me I'd like to have added a little more saffron becuase it's a taste that I am enjoying more and more. I will experiment with it and get it perfect for us. DH made this and since I'm being careful with the calories he did cut back the olive oil a LOT... half a cup seemed a little much and it was still really good with less. Please see my rating system: a wonderful 4 stars for a very authentic Portuguese recipe that tasted lovely and that we will be making again. Thanks!
