lot’s a fish in the sea

i’m a huge fan of portuguese brand jose gourmet – not only their branding is amazingly cool, but their products are delicious too.

canned sea food in olive oil is a big thing in portugal. the last time i went back home, i went to sol e pesca, a bar where you can have a glass of green wine with your choice of can and a basket of bread – the perfect appetizer before dinner!

my favorite were jose gourmet’ventrusca tuna fish and the trout fillets in escabeche – lucky me, i brought a few over last time i came from lisbon.

we love eating grilled sardines in the summer, i’m a big fan, it’s a very portuguese thing, plus they’re  super healthy.

a few weeks ago i stumbled upon these ones hand painted in perfection by marina, the owner of mageiko arte batik.

this one came with me to turks and caicos – i’m pretty in love with them all!
