I came across this recipe when I was around 10 years old. My mother's best friend is Portuguese and when she used to look after me I used to eat all of these unusually wonderful and tasty meals. This is the main reason why I still visit her! I don't actually know if it's 100% Portuguese, but I fail to find another exact recipe. This is very simple, but you can't turn your back away from this recipe.
