Bacalhau a Bras

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Graybert

A traditional Portuguese dish. Serve this with thinly cut french fries, rice and a salad of mixed greens with a vinaigrette dressing. I love eating this when I go back home - it is so good! I only make it once a year - DH won't eat cod. If he only knew what he was missing! Enjoy! Prep time includes cooling time for cod.

We have both finished 40 year careers, and while traveling, fell in love with the Portuguese Azores - and we're retiring to Sao Miguel! What a beautiful country, and incredible people and culture. In doing so, we experimented with Portuguese cuisine. We cooked this recipe and now count Bacalhau a Bras as a favorite comfort food. Easy to make and it is equally as good re-heated, although we tend to eat it all hot. Wonderful recipe and instruction! Thank you.
