Today’s featured recipe comes to us from Regina at Molly Mel. Regina regularly submits Brazilian recipes for us to sample, but today she has chosen a Portuguese dish that is often served at Easter time – Bacalhoada – more commonly known as Salted Codfish casserole.
Salted Codfish Casserole Recipe.
This dish is served in both Brazil and Portugal.
My husband is English and he loves Cod, so I am always on the lookout for new and interesting ways to prepare the dish. Regina says that salted codfish isn’t an item that is easily-found in the supermarket, and is quite expensive if you do find it. That is why the dish is served for a special occasion like Easter.
With a good quality fish and fresh ingredients like this, the recipe can’t help but be delicious!
One of the keys to making this dish well is to soak the salted codfish for 24 hours to remove the salt. I have given you the basic recipe below, but Regina has great details on her website for the total preparation of it. All photos are courtesy of Molly Mel.
