Cataplana. Feb 13, 2017
Cataplana is both the name of a dish and a pan.

It is shaped like two clam shells hinged at one end. Traditionally it was made of copper. It is thought it was introduced in the country by the Moors. Cataplana as food is a slow cooked stew of fish, seafood, chorizo (a kind of salami) and vegetables. Here the food is put inside raw and is let simmer after having clamped the saucepan.

You can buy a cataplana in the Algarve. They are quite expensive.
