Bacalhau à Bras (Portuguese style codfish )

Bacalhau a bras

Today I bring a new way of cooking codfish. It is important to eat fish several times a week, so I am constantly looking for new ways to prepare it. In addition, cod is one of my favorite fishes, for the price, texture and has few thorns (so it is a good choice for children).

This recipe is originally from Portugal, as you might know they are really good preparing this kind of fish. It is very easy to prepare and cheap. The only drawback I see is that it must be taken at the time (from one day to another is not so good). In addition, this particular dish, I like to finish it in the pan (not on the Thermomix).

It is a good recipe for children as they will be eating fish without even realizing it. The fact that cod is completely crumbled, no thorns and is accompanied by egg and french fries, make it a perfect dish for the little ones.
