João’s Bacalhau à Brás

Portuguese love cod (bacalhau). And Bacalhau à Brás is arguably the most common bacalhau dish in Portugal. João is Portuguese, so he loves Bacalhau à Brás. And he shared this love with us. ❤️

Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Portuguese
Serves: 8
  • 800 gr cod, fresh
  • 3 big onions
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 12 eggs
  • 750 gr matchstick potato chips
  • parsley
  • black olives
  • pepper
  • salt
  • olive oil
  1. Chop the onions and garlic to small pieces and mince the cod.
  2. In a deep pan, sweat the onions and garlic until golden, then add the pieces of cod, and cook for a few minutes, until it soaks up the oil.
  3. Then add the potatoes and stir whilst adding the beaten eggs with salt and pepper to taste. (Remember: the chips and the cod are already salty enough!)
  4. Stir for a few minutes, until the chips moisten but before the eggs become an omelette.
  5. Serve hot, with chopped parsley and black olives.
