August 8, 2022

Peixinhos da horta (Port. Peixinhos da horta) is a traditional dish of Portuguese cuisine. The name literally translates as "Fish from the garden" because it resembles small pieces of colorful fish. It was brought to Japan by Jesuit missionaries in the sixteenth century, where it later turned into tempura.


Peyshinyush da Horta is usually made from green beans in a wheat flour batter, which is then deep-fried. Other vegetables such as bell peppers and zucchini are also used.
