cod fish: portuguese style!
In PORTUGAL, we have hundreds of ways of cooking cod fish, all of them incredibly tasty! In fact, we have the audacity to think that no one cooks this fish like we do! Do you doubt?? Well... you only have one option: come to Portugal and draw your own conclusions! :)
This cod recipe is based on Portuguese cuisine and fish (especially cod) is really popular in Portugal. You can use salt cod, like the Portuguese do, or regular cod filets for this recipe. Bear in mind that salt cod needs to be soaked in water for twenty four hours before you cook with it.
