El Portal Heats Up the Summer with Three Weekly Specials That Tantalize

Published on Jun 27, 2023

El Portal’s chef’s weekly specials are always a treat, and this week’s lineup is no exception. 

The shrimp ceviche is a light and refreshing dish that is perfect for a summer day, while Frida’s Chile Relleno is a more hearty option that is packed with flavor. And the Salmon Del Manager is a great choice for seafood lovers, with its grilled salmon and mango relish. 

Let’s dig and check out each:

The first special is a Shrimp Ceviche, which is made with diced large shrimp mixed with onion, tomato, cilantro, and jalapeño, all cooked in lime juice. The ceviche is served with tostadas and is a refreshing and light dish that is perfect for a summer day.

The second special is Frida’s Chile Relleno, which is a fresh pasilla chile filled with ground beef, finely diced raisins, gorgonzola cheese, and fried plantain. The chile is served over a walnut sauce and topped with pomegranate seeds, rice, and fresh vegetables. This dish is a bit more hearty than the ceviche, but it is still packed with flavor.

The third special is a Salmon Del Manager, which is a fresh filet of salmon lightly marinated with pasilla chile, then grilled. The salmon is topped with mango relish and served with a side of white beans with cilantro and fresh vegetables. This dish is a great option for seafood lovers, and the mango relish adds a touch of sweetness that perfectly complements the grilled salmon.

All three of these specials are available for a limited time only, so be sure to head to El Portal soon to try them.
