Is there a better time of year than summer to enjoy the light and fresh cuisines of Spain and Portugal? Inspired by the seasons and the sea, Downtown Milwaukee’s Amilinda transports their guests to Western Europe with every dish, all while celebrating our local ingredients. We wanted to help, capture some of their magic with a few recipes for you to try at home. These dishes allow fresh ingredients to shine, beautifully marrying flavorful herbs, spices, vegetables, and seafood. Approach the seafood with gentle cooking to keep it delicate, and you’re sure to keep these recipes in your summertime rotation for years to come.
Between Milwaukee and Broadway sits Amilinda, a Spanish-Portuguese restaurant owned by Gregory Leon.
“I learned and discovered that food and cooking is something that you can use to bring people together,” says Gregory Leon, an award-winning chef in Milwaukee.
