Does anyone have a recipe for the Portuguese stew called soupish or know where I can do a search? Thank you.

      It wasn't included, but what a fun site!

    2. I asked a Portuguese co-worker. He has not heard of "soupish".

      1. Try this "soupas" - I have had other people call it something like "silpash" too...

          In the Fall River, MA area (heavy on Portuguese immigrants), "soupish" is a traditional soup of meat cooked with spices. I believe it is a mispronounciation of "sopas", the correct Portuguese word for soup. In Portuguese, the "as" is pronounced more like "ash". I've attached a link.

          BTW, the "ish" is also sometimes tacked onto words for humor - usually by Anglos. (i.e., My husband is "Bill Saundish" to his Fall River buddies, I can only assume because of his love of Portuguese food.)
