made this for lunch. was very easy. tasted ok.. maybe that has more to do with my taste in food than the recipe. =P this recipe makes quite a lot, so unless you're cooking for 4 ppl or more, i'd halve the recipe. i've never had portuguese food before. thanks for sharing this recipe! very different taste. =D
