4 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 teaspoons crushed peppers
1 teaspoon paprika
1teaspoon salt
1 cup wine vinegar
2 cup water
2 bay leaver crushed
4 to 5 pounds haddock fillets


[1] Combine all ingredients except the last. (This makes a marinade called “vinha de alhos”).  Pour over haddock fillets, marinate overnight. Drain fish; save marinade.

[2] Cut fillets in long strips about 1 inch wide; wind on skewers, making loops in opposite directions as shown in photograph, running skewer through fish at each turn.

[3] Place on grill about 4 inches above hot coals. Broil about 15 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork, and is golden brown, turning often and brushing with marinade.

[4] Serve in Portuguese buns, if available,  or in frankfurter rolls which have been heated on the grill.

Makes 8 servings.
