Dubbed by popular culture as a “faithful friend”, salt cod has been the number one fish course at the Portuguese dinner table since the middle ages.
It is something of a paradox that the icon of Portuguese food culture has to be imported from Norway or Iceland, but Mr., Silva knows all there is to know about codfish. His hands are scorched from a lifetime handling the salted fish, probably making him the best person in Lisbon to advise you on which one to get! From small to large, from dry salted to a yellow sun, dry salted, from 3cm to 10cm thick, he knows it all.
