    KateL's Note:

    Entered for safe-keeping, as Portuguese cooking fascinates me, and this recipe promises some exciting left-overs. This can be used to marinate fish that has been fried or grilled: refrigerate for 2-3 days in the sauce, then serve. From Ana Patuleia Ortins' "Portuguese Homestyle Cooking." Of course, you can also pour over freshly cooked fish or serve it on the side. Edited 7/06/12 to add smoked paprika as an option.

      This definitely has 'Wow' factor. the only change I made was to use just half of the cider vinegar called for, as we preferred a more olive oil dressing. I also used dried parsley (on hand). This was easy to make, and great served over baked tilapia. This would be good on chicken or anything grilled. I can't wait to grill some shrimp and baste it with this stuff. Thanks for another great recipe Kathy! Made for PRMR.
