Hark, hark Good people of Luz, lend me thine ears, 

For I bring tidings that may bring thee cheers!

Fortaleza da Luz, that stately fortress old, 

Hath undergone a change, as it were foretold.

Forsooth, 'twas closed for two moons in length, 

But now it opens with renewed strength. 

Come hither, dine on Portuguese fare, 

And feast thine eyes on views so rare.

The coast line stretches out so far, 

It's beauty doth outshine the brightest star. 

So mark thee well, from today at noon, 

Fortaleza da luz, shall open soon!

What makes this dish so special is that it is cooked in a clam- shaped copper dish which concentrates theflavours during cooking.
