Bacalhau à Gomes de Sá

Bacalhau à Gomes de Sá is a casserole of bacalhau, potatoes, eggs, olives, olive oil and onion.[1] It is a speciality from the northern Portuguese city of Porto.

Etymology[edit]

Gomes de Sá was the son of a rich nineteenth century merchant (apparently he dealt in cod) in Porto. The family fortune dwindled and the son had to find a job at Restaurante Lisbonense, a restaurant in downtown Porto where he created this recipe.
