Recommended Posts

Fish and Brewis (pronounced brews)



4 cakes hard bread

2 lbs salt cod

1 cup salt pork, finely diced


Break each bread into 2 or 3 pieces and soak for 6-8 hours, or overnight, in cold water. Use lots of water because it will be absorbed. Soak salt cod in separate bowl of cold water for 6-8 hours, or overnight. Change water once or twice if you prefer less salt. If using fresh fish, add 1 tsp of salt to water when cooking. In the morning, change water on cod and simmer gently until tender, 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat and drain. Skin, bone and flake fish. Place hard bread in saucepan with enough water to cover bread, use water in which it soaked. Heat slowly just until it comes to a boil. Remove from heat and drain immediately. Add cooked, flaked fish and mix. Keep hot. Fry salt pork until golden brown and crisp. These scrunchions and fat may be poured over fish and brewis mixture when served, or mixed with it. Serve hot.
