  • About

The Portuguese eat a lot of snails, and this is a fairly simple recipe. The Portuguese chili sauce, piri piri, replaces the chili of the Spanish dish, and oregano and bay leaf give it a particular flavor all of its own. This is another very good party dish to be put in the middle of the table. You remove the snails from the shells rather in the manner that one eats periwinkles.
