Fish and Brewis

Fish and Brewis created by jozziemomma

This is my Favorite Traditional Newfoundland meal. The ingredients may be hard to find unless you have a "Newfie Shop" close by but if you can find them, this is a treat. In the past, the hard bread and salt cod were meant to last the long winters that are present in Newfoundland and also the long time at sea for most fisherman (Newfoundland was once a prosperous fishing province and many people today still rely on the ocean for their livelyhood). You can either mash the potatoes, fish and hard bread together with the scrunchins or you can just serve each seperate either with the Scrunchins or Drawn Butter. Enjoy!!!
