Portuguese/Brazillian Bacalhau Que Nunca Chega
The Participant Observer Recipe of the Month is: Bacalhau Que Nunca Chega. This cod, potato, and egg dish originates in Portugal but is very popular in Brazil as well.

Bacalhau Que Nunca Chega

The literal English translation of this dish's name is, "Never enough cod". Popular in Brazil, the dish is of Portuguese origin. Legend has it that Portuguese King Carlos I unexpectedly returned from a battle and demanded to be fed. Surprised by the arrival of the king, the royal chef had scarce provisions in the castle. He did, however, have some salted cod (cod preserved in salt), some ham, a few onions and some potatoes. The King and the Royal Court were so impressed with the dish that, much to the chagrin of the cook, they demanded it again and again. Exasperated, the cook cried, "There is never enough cod!".

Cod dishes like Bacalhau Que Nunca Chega are particularly popular during Good Friday and Easter celebrations when eating fish is a religious tradition amongst Catholics. It is also a common dish in many of the more upscale restaurants in São Paulo.

For centuries cod and other fish have been preserved in salt, as this was the only way for it to survive the long boat journey back to shore. With modern refrigeration and quicker modes of transportation, this is no longer necessary. However, in Portugal and Brazil, salted cod is still the norm. In both countries, shredded cod comes in packs that don't need refrigeration or can be bought in large strips from supermarkets and delis. To make it palatable, salted cod needs to be soaked in several changes of water for one or two days. However, due to the unavailability of salt cod here in the US, this recipe uses fresh or thawed cod available everywhere.

The recipe also calls for deep fried shoestring potatoes. You can either cut the potatoes with a knife, use a mandolin grater with a julienne feature or shred the potato. As the photo shows, the potatoes are cut rather thinly. They resemble riced potatoes, but they are cut raw and then fried before being added to the dish.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ pounds of codfish
  • ½ cup of olive oil
  • 3.5 ounce Prosciutto di Parma
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 1 cup shoestring cut potatoes
  • 6 garlic cloves crushed or chopped fine
  • 1 bunch of Parsley
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • Salt
  • White pepper

Preparation:

  1. Wash and peel the potatoes.
  2. Cut the potato using a method of your choice.
  3. Deep fat fry the potatoes until lightly brown and crispy.
  4. Drain the potatoes on a paper towel.
  5. Boil the cod for five minutes and then remove the cod and set it aside to cool.
  6. Shred the cod with your fingers or a fork.
  7. Heat the olive oil in a saute or frying pan.
  8. Brown the onions and 4 cloves of garlic.
  9. Cover the pan and simmer on low heat for 20 minutes.
  10. In another frying pan, fry the prosciutto in a little oil until crisp.
  11. Add the remaining 2 garlic cloves and cook until brown.
  12. Slightly beat the eggs.
  13. In the pan with the cod, mix all the ingredients (except the parsley) and cook until the eggs are lightly cooked. Do not overcook; you want the potato sticks to remain crisp.
  14. Add salt and pepper to taste and garnish with chopped parsley and serve
