This is a Portuguese dish called bacalau made of salted cod. Great for parties! Plan ahead, because the salted cod needs to soak for 24 hours.
OH MY GOSH! This was unreal! I followed the recipe exactly except I omitted the chopped eggs and olives for garnish. The real name for this recipe is actually 'Bacalhau à Gomes de Sá'. I am Portuguese (my entire family was born and raised in Portugal) and when I told my mom I was making this dish she got so excited! She told me she hadn't had it since she lived in Portugual over 42 years ago! This dish was soooo incredible and tasted so much like something that my Portuguese family would make. Thank you so so much for posting this delicious, authentic recipe, BINGADING! - 26 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Delicious! I used fresh cod instead of salted, and added salt. My wife, she is Portuguese, loved this recipe. I will be making it for her as often as she will like. Thank you for sharing it with us. - 05 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Out of all the recipes I've seen on the internet, yours was the only true one that had the black olives which is always used in this dish in the Azores. Thank you. - 10 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
