Linguica is a cured pork sausage that’s a second cousin to chorizo, the fiery Spanish sausage. Its flavor is shaped by liberal amounts of chile, red wine vinegar, and paprika.

According to Jean Anderson, author of Food of Portugal, the name of this sausage derives from the Portuguese word for tongue—língua—not because it contains tongue, but for its long, slender, red, tongue-like appearance.
