Bacalhau com Natas (Salted Cod fish with Cream) 葡式马介休薯容

Macau was under Portuguese rule until 1999, then transferred to China. During our visit to Macau, we have a chance to taste Portuguese dishes or Fusion dish (Macanese and Cantonese) . The first time I cooked Macau food was Macanese Minchi 澳門式免治 , it was a good dish. This time, I got to know a new ingredient that widely use in Portuguese dishes i.e Bacalhau or salted cod fish or Chinese called as 马介休.

I bought this lucky symbol of Rooster of Barcelos  or Cockerel ( good luck rooster) from the Macau trip.

This is canned Bacalhau .

Actually this dish is easy to make, just mix Bacalhau with mashed potatoes, then bake it.
