Stir Fried Cod and Eggs (Bacalhau à Brás)

The genuine Portuguese recipe uses dried salted cod but it's hard to find here in the UK so I added salt onto a cod fillet and sauteed it - it's not bad at all!

Recipe By: Alia (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/382)
Serves 2 Prep: 10 min Cook: 10 min

Ingredients

Cod fillets 2
Salt as required
Onion 1
Ginger 1 thumb
Garlic 1 clove
Sweet potato 100g
Eggs 4
Salt & pepper as required
Black olives 8-10
Parsley as required
Bay leaf 1

Method

1
Cut the sweet potato into 1mm long strips and roast in the oven at 180C for 8 minutes.
2
Bacalhau is dried salted cod, but I couldn't find it here. Instead, sprinkle strong salt onto the cod fillets and keep aside for 10 minutes.
3
Put 1 tsp olive oil in a large frying pan and fry the cod for 5 minutes. Flake it then remove to a plate.
4
In the same pan, add more olive oil and the finely chopped garlic and ginger. Return the flaked cod from Step 3 into the pan.
5
Add the bay leaf and 3/4 of the beaten eggs and stir fry well.
6
Add the roasted sweet potato from Step 1. When the egg is well cooked, turn off the heat and add the remaining egg and stir well, cooking on residual heat. Season with salt.
7
Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with finely chopped parsley and garnish with olives before serving.

Tips & Note

Bacalhau is very salty. If you happen to find it, don't use additional salt. If using plain cod, you'll need a fair bit of salt as this is the key to the dish, so add it liberally.
