Portugal is the world's largest consumer of cod. Locals know how to cook at least 365 dishes from it - one for every day of the year. On big holidays, cod is the main dish on their table, albeit quite expensive, since the Portuguese import this fish mainly from Norway and Spain.

Fortunately, cod is quite an affordable fish in our country; it is sold in almost any store. So you can soon treat yourself to an excellent fish dish.
