Ed's Portuguese Fish Stew
Chef Michael Cimarusti’s L.A. restaurant, Connie & Ted’s, is modeled on a New England seafood shack. It will feature seafood dishes ranging from clam cakes to this flavorful stew named after his Portuguese uncle. It’s loaded with clams, mussels and cod as well as chunks of linguiça, a smoky, mildly hot cured Portuguese sausage. Slideshow: Great Portuguese Recipes
Linguiça is a smoky Portuguese sausage that’s widely available at specialty food markets. Andouille sausage can be used as an alternative.
This seafood stew is fantastic with Albariño from Spain’s coastal Rías Baixas region. The citrusy wines often have a little saltiness to them, which makes them a great match for seafood.
