Papas casadas (“Married" maize porridge)

“You can make maize porridge with whatever you want”: this is a sentence that is heard frequently in the Algarve and that explains the versatility of “papas de milho” or maize porridge, also known as “xarém” or “xerém”, a word of Arabic origin meaning “ground maize”.

Everything is possible from plain porridge to porridge with sardines, with cockles, with clams, just with fried bread, with chickpeas, with shellfish, or with honey. There are many possible variations, depending mainly on the season, produce availability, a family's habits and the meal for which the dish is intended.

In this culinary experience, you will learn to ‘marry’ maize porridge with cockles and prawns.
