Easy and healthy roasted Portuguese salted cod with a clean lemony flavor.
  • 6 bacalhau filets, presoaked
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • olive oil to drizzle
  1. Preheat the ovenĀ  to 350F (180C).
  2. Lay out a thin layer of onions in a large baking dish and drizzle with just a little olive oil. Place the bacalhau filets on top of the onions, alternating between skin side up and skin side down. Put another layer of onions on top of the fish along with the sliced garlic and lemon. Drizzle a bit more olive oil on top.
  3. Cook in the oven, uncovered, for 30 minutes. If it's frozen, tack on another 15 minutes or so.
  4. Remove from the oven and serve with roasted potatoes.
If you have salted cod that needs to be soaked, place it in a large bowl and top with water. Change the water every 4-6 hours for at least 24 hours. If you aren't using the fish right away, you can freeze it for later use. Notice the recipe doesn't ask for salt, there will be enough to flavor the dish still left in the fish after soaking but it's not overwhelming unless you don't do this VERY necessary step.
