And from Malta to Portugal 🙂 Any dish with cod fish takes be back home and this cod fish pie is a good example.
I don’t want to repeat myself every time I cook cod fish… so instead of explaining how typical this fish is in Portugal and how we cook it in so many different way, this time I’m going to talk about cod fish in Malta.
Here cod fish is called Merluzz, Bakkaljaw or Baccala which is the Italian version. We can find frozen cod fillets quite easily from the fish shops or supermarkets. Then there’s also the breaded cod which is most commonly used in Fish & Chips dishes. I haven’t really seen fresh cod around but maybe I just didn’t pay attention. Maybe because back home we use salted cod a lot more I don’t even remember to look for fresh one.
