Roasted Codfish & Potatoes

Although it's a simple and modest dish it can easily exceed the expectations of our guests/ family members -  it smells greatly, it will literally melt in your mouth and the spiciness will warm you on a chill night. Cod is a lean fish that also happens to be a good source of omega 3 fatty acidsand is widely used in Portuguese cuisine. Super tasty it will be a feast not only for the eyes, but mostly to your palate!

  • 3 pieces of unsalted codfish
  • potatoes
  • onions
  • garlic
  •  bay
  • chili 
  • mixture of peppers 
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • white wine

Start by peeling the potatoes and cut them into cubes. Take them to cook slightly in boiling water and add salt to taste. Drain them and set aside.Slice the onions into , drizzle generously with extra virgin  olive oil and sprinkle with chilii, taking it to a pre-heated oven at 180 ° until lightly golden.

  • batatas
  • cebolas
  • alhos
  • piri piri
  • mistura de pimentas
  • louro

Comece por descascar as batatas e cortá-las aos cubos. Leve-as a cozer levemente em água a ferver e sal a gosto. Escorra-as e reserve. Corte as cebolas em meias-luas, regue generosamente com azeite e polvilhe com piri piri, levando ao forno pré -aquecido a 180º até alourar levemente. Retire, adicione o bacalhau, tempere com a mistura de pimentas, folhas de louro e alhos esmagados, mas com a casca. Junte as batatas, retifique os temperos, e adicione um copo de vinho branco. Leve ao forno a 200º cerca de 30m.


  1. Bem, o meu marido se visse isto devorava o ecrã!!! Já eu não aprecio o bacalhau assim por causa do azeite, mas gosto de bacalhau á braaaaava!!!

  2. Adoro bacalhau de qualquer maneira! Ainda ontem o almoço foi bacalhau com batata doce! Beijinhos

  3. Gosto imenso destas refeições bem tradicionais, uma maravilha!

  4. I think I realize what I do wrong. I don't boil the potatoes first. Thanks for the tip! And that looks glorious.
