Hello hello!!

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.

This 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)
  • Bayleaf
  • 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.DSC_6845.JPG
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!!

Looks very delicious @liliana.durate

Thanks!! It is, really, but I'm not a good describer of flavors!


yaaay lulas! i love them!

also, why dont you write more about the dia da liberdade?

These are "chocos", but for me the flavor it's pretty the same.
I thought to write more on Liberdade's day, but I think it deserves a full post. But I don't have a carnation photo and I would need time to do some research...wich I don't have :( maybe next year!
