Discover the foods of Portugal with Portuguese Cooking: The Traditional Cuisine of Portugal by Carol Robertson, with recipes like Piri-piri, Caldeirada (Portuguese Fish Soup), and Almond Cake with Ovos Moles.
This caldeirada contains a variety of fish and shellfish, and, with a salad, makes a complete meal.
In a large saucepan heat the oil and slightly brown the onion. Add the garlic and green pepper and heat for another minute. Add the tomatoes and their liquid, the bay leaf, wine, stock, and piri-piri. Simmer for 15 minutes, then add the fish pieces. Cook for 5 minutes, add the clams and cook for 5 minutes longer.
In the meantime, cut a thick slice of bread per person and place one in the bottom of each broad soup bowl. Ladle the broth with its fish over the bread. Garnish with chopped coriander or parsley.
Serve with additional bread and a white wine (see "A Word About Wines" in the book).
