The Portuguese love codfish so much that the easiest way to become famous in Portugal is to create a popular codfish recipe. Writers might see their books go out of print, painters might see their works gather dust. But no one forgets Brás, Zé do Pipo, and Gomes de Sá because their recipes are part of our daily life.
In a recent visit to Tasca da Esquina, chef Victor Sobral prepared us a surprise menu. One of the items was a very refined version of codfish Brás style, the best we have ever tried. Imagine how Brás would feel, seeing his century-old recipe come alive in the hands of a great contemporary chef!
We wish we could write a longer post but we have to go, we bought some codfish to try a few ideas.

Vou a Lisboa no fim de Março e já coloquei um visita a este restaurante na minha agenda 🙂 obrigado pela dica 🙂

My favorite codfish dish is pasteis de bacalhau, but I’d be open to other ways to fix it.
Having tasted so many different Cod dishes over the past few years (all of which were amazing) I finally tried cooking Balcalhau myself. And of course the problem was not the cooking but which recipe to try!
Codfish Lagareiro style is our favorite. Here’s a great recipe: https://pasto.wordpress.com/2012/07/01/grilled-salted-cod-with-olive-oilbacalhau-a-lagareiro/
