Cataplana Mista

The cataplana is a hinged metal pan shaped  like an oversized clam shell.  The Portuguese use it to cook this marvelous seafood stew. A good substitute for cataplana is a wok with a tight fitting lid. Make sure you use seafoods that are really fresh as well as good quality olive oil and wine.
