I’ve had the Bacalhau (dry, salted cod) in my fridge for the past 3 or so days, waiting for a perfect moment to finally prepare it. I’ve seen my Portuguese flatmate cook it in London, so I didn’t look at recipes online prior. It must’ve been the hunger from my Braga daytrip that took over, because I completely forgot to wash the salt off the fish before baking it. Pretty funny right? And, it didn’t really hit me until I tried it, and finally figured out where I went wrong. My apartment at first was filled with most lovely smell, I got so excited about this meal. The fish, if you forget to wash the salt off, is so insanely salty, woooh it’s nuts! I’m naturally not really into too much salt on my food, I use natural lemon juice sometimes instead of salt to add more flavour to dishes. So, what did I do? I ate one entire plate anyways, I was hungry. I followed up with some Milka Strawberry Yogurt Chocolate to get rid of the saltiness in my mouth. Now water, then wine and all is ok. Sharing with you some photos of what was supposed to be a yummy dinner. If you make the same error, no worries, just wash the fish with water after and reheat it lightly. That’s all for now guys, Boa Noite from Porto e beijinhos!
