Hopefully, the boat is full of sardines (sardinha), peixe espada or robalo. Rovalo is like a european seabass with mild taste that is perfect for sharing between two people.

Other fish species found in Portugal:
– Dourada
– Linguado
– Pescada
– Besugo
– Salmonete (red mullet)

On the celebration of Sao Joao, grilled sardines is like the must have for both locals and tourists.
