Outside of Portugal, Azores and Brazil, linguiça is also popular in Goa (once a Portuguese colony in India), Southeastern Massachusetts, Massachusetts' North Shore, California, Rhode Island, Hawaii, and Okinawa, where it is often simply called "Portagee sausage, a negative ethnic slang term." It is typically sliced before being braised or grilled. In Hawaii, McDonald's restaurants serve breakfasts featuring Portuguese sausage, Hawaiian Portagee Sausage is usually smoked using Banana leaves .
Linguiça, like many other sausages, is generally served as part of a heavy meal, typically accompanied by rice, beans, and other pork products. Feijoada, for example, is a traditional Portuguese dish, also common in Brazil and Angola, that incorporates linguiça with beans, ham hocks, and other foods.
Linguiça is a popular dish in Mangalore among the Catholic community there, It is more spicy than its original, and is more related to the Goan chorizo. Linguiça has a strong flavor of red chillies, peppercorns, turmeric, and salt. It is typically prepared by half frying onions, and adding sugar and vinegar to the meat, and cooking over a low flame, preferably wood fire.
