Cod is popular as a food with a mild flavour and a dense, flaky white flesh. Cod livers are processed to make cod liver oil, an important source of vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids.
Codfish was brought to Brazil by the Portuguese people. Codfish can be served at any time, but in Brazil it’s typically served on Holy Friday. There are many ways to prepare it. This recipe is easy to prepare and one of my favorites.
