I'm Portuguese and now live in Portugal so this dish is made often in our home. I use olive oil instead of margarine and serve it with cubed fries and some olives for garnish and chopped pickeled mixed vegetabels. sprinckeled over top with lots of chopped cilantro its soooooo good!!!!!!!!
My family also does not make this with Tomato. Every Christmas eve I look forward to this meal it is the only time of the year that we make it. I think that thing I love most about this dish is that my Dad always tells the history of this dish. It was invented in Portugal during the Spanish Inquisition. It proved that you were Christian because if you were a Jew you would not eat the pork (Or Clams) and if you were an Arab you would not eat the Clams. From there it turned into the must have dish for Christmas Eve in all Portuguese Households. Traditionally it is served with cube fries.
Made this for my Portugese boyfriend. He said it was great and liked it better than his own. He especially loved the sauce only wished there was more of it. Needs more cilantro than called for. (1/2 cup or more)
