Bacalhau is the way that’s called the dried and salted cod fish in Portuguese and it’s the national dish. It’s also popular in some other countries such as Norway or Canada, but the Portuguese prepare Bacalhau making it the tastiest fish dish you’ll ever try.
There are several different recipes of Bacalhau in Portugal, all of them great for the palate, but maybe the most popular and delicate one is Bacalhau à Brás. You should try it when you visit our Hostel in Lisbon.
Bacalhau à Brás in made with shreds of salted cod, onions, fried potatoes and scrambled eggs and usually is garnished with parsley and black olives. It’s a pretty cheap recipe and easy to prepare so it became popular quickly.
Bacalhau à Brás, where Brás stands for the surname of its creator, originated in Barrio Alto, really close to Equity Point Lisboa Hostel.
