Salada de Bacalhau com Feijão Frade – Salt Cod and Black Eyed Pea Salad
This is a perfect dish to prepare for a quick lunch or dinner. Cod is considered on of the world’s healthiest foods with; omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins and it has low calorie protein.
You can serve this dish cold in the summer, or as a hot dish in the colder months. Sometimes I also add 2 boiled potatoes cut into chunks to the recipe to make the dish heartier. Enjoy!
8 oz Bacalhau (Salt Cod)
1 can black eyed peas (drained and rinsed)
1/2 small onion (finely minced)
2 cloves garlic (finely minced)
2 eggs (hard boiled)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
Chopped parsley (garnish)
2 boiled potatoes (optional)
Cook the cod in boiling water for about 8 minutes until flaky. Drain, let cool, shred into pieces and place in a medium bowl.
Make the vinaigrette by mixing together the onion, garlic, oil, and vinegar.
Add the peas to codfish and mix. Add the vinaigrette and mix gently.
Top with the eggs and parsley. Taste and add salt and pepper if desired.
If you want to serve this dish hot, heat the peas and add it to the warm cod along with the other ingredients.
