Cod Portuguese

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by CulinaryQueen

The Portuguese are great fish eaters, situated as they are right on the rich Atlantic sea board. One of their favourite fish is cod, but you can use any other white fish in this recipe.

Excellent recipe. I didn't have an orange so I substituted a grapefruit instead.
