Hello!! :-)

There was this other day (some weeks ago, actually) that there was simply nothing on TV (nothing new until here), so I kept on zapping around. Eventually, I came across one of Jamie Oliver's shows. What really caught my attention (and stomach!) was that he was cooking a long time favorite dish of mine. But that's not all; he was cooking Portuguese food!!!
I had to watch it.

Even though he made his own version off this recipe, in essence, he was preparing an easy but tasty Bacalhau à Brás. As far as I can remember, I have always been a HUGE fan of this dish, to the point I can eat until my stomach hurts or I feel sick.
This time it was no different... LOL

This is very easy to make and serves easily 4 people (or one hungry Miss B... #noshame).

What you'll need:
  • Salty cod fish - I used 2 medium size slices
  • 5 medium size eggs
  • straw crisps
  • black olives
  • olive oil
  • garlic
  • onion
  • pepper
  • fine chopped parsley 
How to:
  1. One day prior to prepare this dish, allow the cod fish to get unsalted by dipping it into cold water. 
  2. Punch the cod. Once cooled, rip it apart in small bits.
  3. In a large frying pan, cook the onions chopped in thin slices with the olive oil until translucent. 
  4. Add the cod and the straw crisps. Once the crisps are getting soft, add the eggs, previously mixed. 
  5. Add all the spices to taste and let it cook until you get a stiff but not hard mixture. It should resemble an omelet, but don't let it burn! ;)
  6. Put it on to a plate, garnish with the black olives and chopped parsley.
  7. Try not to eat all at once! hahaha

As I said, I am a huge fan of this dish! Brings back so many memories from home...
One of the many powers that food has; it can really transport you through time.

If you prepare this one, let me know how you like it! :-)
I am already looking forward to cook this again... Be prepared, stomach... be prepared!

Bom apetite!
