"Pastel de Bacalhau"




Downtown Lisbon

The very typical Pastel de Bacalhau (plural: Pastéis) is made of potatoes, bacalhau (codfish), eggs, parsley and other ingredients. It's deep fried and served before meals or as a meal itself usually with tomato rice. Here's the recipe.

Love it! Didn't know of the existence of this shop though...
The ones with the "Serra cheese" must be to die for!

Cruel. I'm hungry but sick. While I have dried salted bacalhau and potatoes, I don't have the other ingrédients. Plus I'm too tired to cook...

My wife tried dried bacalhau during our one brief visit to Lisbon. I wasn't brave enough but the place didn't look this elegant.
