How to Make Bacalhau à Brás

As most of you know, I am originally from Portugal. Bacalhau à Brás is a very traditional Portuguese dish that I cooked for the first time recently. I was very proud of myself and it gave me a little piece of my country until I’m able to go back! 🙂


  • 1 pound of fresh cod
  • 1 large onion
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 2 large potatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 can of black olives
  • Olive Oil


  • Peel and cut the potatoes into thin slices
  • Mince the garlic cloves
  • Cut the onion into thin strips
  • Chop the black olives into small pieces
  • Cut the cod into large pieces (make sure there is no skin or bones)
  • Pour olive oil into a frying pan, heat it over high flame and fry the potatoes. Place them on a plate
  • Sauté the garlic and the onion until they are lightly browned in a frying pan. Add the cod to the pan and stir it constantly until the cod starts to come apart
  • Once the cod is ready, add the potatoes and olives and mix for a few minutes
  • Place the mixture into a baking dish. Break two eggs on the top and put it in the oven for 5 minutes at 425 degrees
  • Enjoy!
