Arroz de Atum – Cape Verdean Rice with TunaBy CrystalA traditional Cape Verdean diet is rich in fish and seafood so arroz de atum (also referred to as arroz ku atum) is a perfect taste of my island nation in one bite. Unlike most Cape Verdean dishes, it doesn't take a whole afternoon or day to make which is perfect with my busy schedule and family life.
I recommend imported tuna from Cape Verde or Portugal as the pieces are meatier and it's usually a little bit saltier than American tuna. Plus, its packed in olive oil which lends the dish a distinct taste.
