Bacalhau à Brás

Bacalhau à Brás (Cod à la Brás) is made from shreds of salted cod (bacalhau), onions and thinly chopped (matchstick sized) fried potatoes in a bound of scrambled eggs[1][2]. It is usually garnished with black olives and sprinkled with fresh parsley. The origin of the recipe is uncertain, but it is said to have originated in Bairro Alto, an old quarter of Lisbon. The name "Brás" (or sometimes Braz, Blaise in English) is supposedly the name of its creator.

The technique of à Brás is often used with other ingredients, such as vegetables and mushrooms.
