Prep Time: 20 min

Cooking Time: 20 min

Serves: 04


  • 400 g salted cod
  • 500g potato stick
  • 01 large onion
  • 01 garlic head
  • 6 eggs
  • Salt, pepper, parsley to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Pitted and sliced Black olives


To prepare the Portuguese Bacalhau à bras recipe, start having soaked the salt cod, then remove the skin and bones, and break it apart with your hands. You can find at Soares the cod already pre-soaked. If you buy, it salted, allow 2-3 days in water, changing the water every six hours.

Once the cod is unsalted, put it in boiling water and boil for approximately 5-7 minutes. Let it cool. Then, slice it into small pieces.

Then, in a pan, sweat the onions and garlic until golden, then add the pieces of the cod, and cook for a few minutes.

At this stage, add the potatoes and stir while adding the lightly beaten eggs with salt and pepper.

Stir for a few minutes, turning off the heat before the eggs solidify and become an omelette!

The Bacalhau à bras must be served hot, with parsley and black olives.
