this is my portuguese boyfriend's mother's recipe & if he knew i posted it here he'd kill me! (hence the name!) but dont worry, i decided that this family secret is worth dying for! so easy with fantastic flavor proves you don't always need a bunch of diffferent spices if you're using good ingredients!! i order my linguica from back east because the stuff found here "isnt the same" according to my bf. here's the site i order from http://melloschourico.com/.
