This is one of my favourite ways to make cod. It was a dish who's inventor was a cod merchant from the beautiful city of Oporto.
Since its creation it has become a traditional dish to many Portuguese family tables, especially for the Christmas eve dinner table, being a country wich is predominantly catholic, most in Portugal abstain from serving meat for Christmas eve dinner. So the tradition in most regions of Portugal is to eat cod.
In light of the season I thought I would share this recipe.
Merry Christmas to everyone!
