Im cooking here in England this time so more of our friends can enjoy.
We have a very good fish market close by that im sure will be able to supply me salt cod.
Im cooking for Friday night so realy need to get my finger out and get cracking.
the chouriço or flaming sausage is easy and doesn't need to be cooked in the oven. Have you got one of those brown terracotta plates?Make some cuts in the sausage just so the skin is cut on both sides, get some alchool or vodka/medronho/bagaco, place the sausage on the plate pour over the spirit and light this will cook it. Then all you do is cut it up and eat it with bread.
Believe me this IS how it's done, I've seen it cooked on a table like this no plate or anything
This is quite good and can be done ahead and as you'll have the oven on for the bacalhau...
What about chouriço cut into slices with a small piece of cheese secured with a cocktail stick, black sausage (morcela) sliced with pineapple on top secured with a cocktail stick and dates wrapped in bacon. Arrange them on a baking tray and whizz them in the oven about 5 mins before sitting down. Always goes down a treat in my house ( I've yet to find something that they won't eat )
Oh, by the way this is a bung it recipie!
Cover the bottom of a baking dish with sliced onion and loads of chopped garlic, place bacalhau pieces on top, add small, raw cubed potatoes pour olive oil over everything until about a cm deep shove into a medium oven + - 180º for about an hour or until potatoes browned and cooked through sprinkle with chopped parsley or corriander serve with a lettuce and onion salad seasoned with vinagre, olive oil and salt.
the potatoes must be cut small otherwise they will take too long to cook. This is called Bacalhau a Lagareiro, well it's my version
