Portuguese food is having a resurgence in the restaurant and cookbook worlds alike, and we’ve never been happier. Between the simple fresh fish preparations, hearty meats, vibrant sauces and delicious plethora of sweet and savory baked goods, we’ve stuffed and perfectly content. This salt cod with bread is a beloved dish in the region, and one you should definitely make at home. 

Migas are dishes made with garlic, oil and leftover bread, either corn or wheat, and are common throughout Portugal as well as Spain. This version contains both salt cod and cream, making it rich and very tasty. If you’d like to try this as a main course, add some cooked pinto beans to the hot frying pan; it’s also very good with a little Roasted Red Pepper Paste (see above) stirred through.
