Caldo Verde

Hi there,

Something as typical as it gets here in POrtugal CALDO VERDE!!

There is no popular party that can happen without this, a potatoe soup with some really thin slced cabagge, i added some bacon, but it should be "chouriço"

Cuttle fish

It sure doesn't look good.

Nevertheless it tastes great.

I cooked it with the ink (which for me is what delivers the taste) so it is strange because the meat of tis fish is white and the consistency very interesting.

Well it was delicious and the first time i cooked.

I show a picture of the fish taken from the shellfish association in england so that you can see what the actual fish looks like

One of my favourite dishes is Octopus that we get it pretty much everywhere in Portugal and cooked in all sorts of way.

So I decided to cook my own "Polvo á Lagareiro"

easy, garlic, olive oil, octopus, potatoes, salt and "coentros"

Looks nice and tastes, nice, anyone disagrees?
