POKE BOWLS, PORTUGUESE FLAVORS – SARDINES

Inspired by the famous Hawaiian Poke Bowls, my Poke Bowls, Portuguese Flavors are made with the versatility and flavor of Portuguese canned fish.

Sunny weekends lead many Lisbon residents to enjoy their country or beach houses and the Portuguese West Coast is a destination of choice for many.

Lisbon is not limited to the city and the Lisbon region extends through incredible landscapes and countless attractions, and exceptional conditions for days on the beach walks in full nature and days of rest and plenty of fresh air.

Whenever I can, I take refuge in this area and choose the quiet days of Flat 23, in Bombarral, a village just 45 minutes away from Lisbon, surrounded by vineyards that make up the West Coast Wine Route and very close to incredible beaches that are part of the West Coast Surf Route and the World Surf League.

“Dolce fare niente” is the motto of these days that take place in the company of a good book, long walks, sunscreen and healthy meals, very easy prepare and to take to the beach, to a picnic or to enjoy in the bright and very pleasant patio of this house.

That is why this Summer I decided to share with you some quick and fresh food recipes for the summer days.

Inspired by the famous Hawaiian Poke Bowls, my Poke Bowls, Portuguese Flavors are made with the versatility and flavor of Portuguese canned fish.

For this weekend I suggest a Poke Bowl, Portuguese Flavors of Sardines – very easy to prepare and very tasty!

Just cut half a red onion into very thin strips, half a sliced ​​cucumber, and four halved cherry tomatoes.
Cut two slices of bread of your choice and toast.
Then just choose a bowl, open a can of sardines in olive oil, arrange the sardines on the toasted bread slices, the vegetables on the side and prepare a sauce with the sardine olive oil, half a green pepper cut into very small cubes and the juice of half a lemon.
Season this sauce with a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper, pour over the bowl, and sprinkle some black olives.
Garnish with two half slices of lemon and it’s ready to indulge yourself!

To accompany my Poke Bowls, Portuguese Flavors I always choose one of the Mundus white wines, also from this region of the Portuguese West Coast.

The perfect combination for this recipe is Mundus Branco Selecionado, white wine with fine citric color and a fresh fruit flavor of green fruits.
It is very fresh with long persistence and therefore ideal to pair with fish and seafood dishes.
