    Years ago I was married to a Portuguese girl for 12 years, and this is a dish her mother used to make.

      This was fabulous! Since it's a Portuguese recipe, I used Linguica instead of chorizo. Splendid!! I will be making this as often as I can afford the ingredients. :)

      Oh my Goodness! I made this for my fiancee and we both agreed this was the BEST thing I've ever made. And Im a very good cook. I substituted Kielbasa for the ham hocks and Used White Zinfandel. I didnt have mussels unfortunately. Now that we're in lent I can use this as an excuse to make more often. Delicious!
