The " alheira" is one of Portugal's best most renowned traditional sausages. In general, the "alheira" contains a base of pork and pork fat, bread crumbs, olive oil and lard, garlic, salt and sweet paprika and it is smoked. Just to prove its quality I can tell you that it’s been selected as one of the Portuguese“7 Wonders of Portuguese Gastronomy” in 2011. Have I got your attention now? This course is absolutely delicious and cheap and appers at our table on a regular basis. It can be fried or grilled, my choice, and I like to cook it very well so that when we are eating we get t a nice, crispy texture without it getting too soft and sticky. The flavour is amazing and I am pretty sure hence you try it you'll become the ultimate "alheira" lover!
