25th April is a holiday in Portugal, 'Dia da Liberdade' (Freedom day) that celebrates the beginning of democracy (it happened 43 years ago in 1974).
There are a lot of parties for celebration, but I needed some rest time as next weekend promises to be a hard working one.
Last Sunday I didn't prepare my (usual) Sunday Cook (of course I ate, but nothing that deserves the SundayCook tag). Today I prepared something delicious and worth of a post to Steemit under the SundayCook tag.
Sunday Tuesday holiday I cooked
Cuttlefish 'à bulhão pato' (Choquinhos à bulhão pato)
- 800g cuttlefish
- 750g potatoes
- 10 cloves of garlic
- 50 ml white wine
- Olive oil (the enough to cover the bottom of the pan)
- Coriander (to taste)
- Juice of one lemon
- Salt (to taste)
- Black pepper (to taste)
1 - Prepare the cuttlefish and season with salt and pepper. Wash the unpeeled potatoes and place it in a pan with boiling water seasoned with salt. Let it boil till cook. Cut the garlic into large slices and the coriander.
2 - In another pan place the olive oil, the chopped garlic and the bay leaf. Let it fry for 3-4 minutes.
3 - Add the cuttlefish and stir, cover the pan and cook over low heat about 10 minutes.
4 - Add the white wine and let cook uncovered for another 5 minutes.
5 - Meanwhile peel the potatoes.
6 - Turn off the heat, season with the lemon juice and chopped coriander.
It's time to serve!!
I prepared a lettuce salad with watercress to accompany this dish, great combination!
The aromas were so great that we decided it was worth to open a special bottle of white wine, Comenda Grande from Alentejo region, you should try!
Hope you enjoyed it!!
I will come back with another Sunday cook delicious :D Stay tuned!!
What is Sunday Cook?!
These Sunday Cook project began with a strong will to contribute to Steemit with my personal view of Portuguese cuisine. I really believe we have plenty of good food. I'm not a professional or nothing similar, but I can assure that I'll do my best! On Sundays, I like to prepare more elaborate and delicious food. It requires time and patient. Usually, I cook some traditional Portuguese food, or at least with Portuguese inspiration :) I try to do it in a healthier way, using the minimum fat as possible, and normally I pick some recipe and transform it. During the week I don't like to spend much time cooking (no time at all), that's why I get totally motivated to cook on Sundays!!
