This is a recipe for a simple cataplana that I cooked recently. It’s a traditional Portuguese dish and, while commonly made with clams, I like to use it as a “catch of the day” recipe since it works well with just about any shellfish I’ve used. Traditionally, it is made in a copper clam-shell pot called a cataplana – where the dish inherited it’s name – but if you don’t own one then you could substitute a pot with a weighted non-vented lid.
This is a recipe for a backpacking-friendly paella. Well, to be honest as someone who cooks paella frequently, it’s really more paella-inspired. In any case, check it out and let me know in the comments if you actually give it a try!
