Recipe by Rita1652

I order this in our favorite Portuguese restaurant. I didn't see any on zaar close to what we enjoy. Bacalhau is a staple of the Portuguese cuisine. This dish has sliced garlic, onions, peppers, potatoes and olives made with lots of olive oil. I used red, yellow and red bell peppers for vibrant color and sweetness but if you prefer green go for it.
