Curious on the history of this recipe and what makes it Azorean vs. a mainland Portuguese dish?

Jim, according to the author's website, this is a regional and popular dish in the Azores, not mainland, so I am only assuming, but maybe that is why you can't compare it with mainland, because they don't cook it there.
