One of our many fish and shellfish meals in Portugal.

I have always stated that the food at Angelo’s rivals pizzas and pastas that we have enjoyed in Italy and now that we have traveled to the Algarve in Portugal, I can claim that they are as excellent as the fishing villages on the Mediterranean coast as well.

Here are some Angelo posts from the Food Musings Archives:

On this evening we were hoping to check out the Jets game so we stopped at Nash’s. We were going to share some nibbles there but there were smokers next to us, a couple of different games on and then a jazz trip started to lay. Even though we claim to be rabid Jets fans, that was a little too much chaos for us.

So four of us wandered down Hidalgo to see what might tempt us all. The aromas wafting out of Angelo’s quickly got our attention so we picked a table on the sidewalk and settled in. Icy cervesas and vino tintos were quickly secured while we perused their extensive menu. R & M were trying to decide between seafood pasta and pizza and so were we so we ordered two of each and shared it all among the four of us.

I can’t quite put my finger n what makes the seafood pizza so good. The wood fired crust is excellent as are the sauce and the liberal use of cheese but I think that it is because the shellfish is placed raw on the pizza and allowed to baked as part of the overall process. This means that the natural juices of the seafood, seep out and meld with all the other delectable flavours.

I predict that the fruit of the sea are steamed together and then tossed with the fettuccine. This also means that the natural juices are a part of the overall taste along with what I suspect is plenty of garlic and a good quality extra virgin olive oil.

Since we were still enjoying the arrival day of our friends, there was still much to get caught up on as well as the necessity of an early evening.
