Filetes de polvo – Polvo Panado
Filetes de polvo or Polvo Panado is a traditional Portuguese dish consisting of fried octopus tentacles. The octopus is boiled until tender, and it is then often seasoned with lemon juice and pepper. The tentacles are dipped in eggwash and breadcrumbs, then fried in oil until golden-brown in color.
This delicious dish is sometimes served with rice on the side, and it is then called filetes de polvo com arroz do mesmo.
Arroz de polvo
Arroz de polvo is a versatile Portuguese dish consisting of cooked diced octopus and rice, incorporated into a rich base of tomatoes, sautéed onions, garlic, and various spices. It is usually prepared in the traditional malandrinho style, in which the liquid is not completely reduced, and the dish resembles a thick rice stew. Arroz de polvo is a hearty meal that is traditionally associated with colder seasons. It is usually served garnished with fresh parsley or cilantro and enjoyed as a nourishing main course.
This is a dish that gives us a lot of energy to spend on a good Kayak tour along the coast and caves of Ponta da Piedade. 🙂
