DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare Bacalhau.
  • Soak fish in water for at least 24 hours and preferably 48 hours, changing the water 3 to 4 times per day.
  • Drain the fish, rinse well and place in a saucepan with enough water to cover.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Taste the water; if it is too salty, drain the fish, add fresh water and bring to a boil again.
  • Lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Drain and let cool.
  • Remove any skin and bones and separate the fish into coarse flakes.
  • Prepare the stew.
  • In a heavy skillet, heat the olive oil and cook the onion slowly until it is golden.
  • Stir in the Bacalhau and heat for two minutes.
  • Add chickpeas, parsley, vinegar, garlic, piri-piri, salt and pepper and cook for another two minutes or until the mixture is completely warmed through.
  • Serve garnished with the hard boiled eggs and olives.
