Fish and Brewis

  • 2 pounds salt cod
  • 6 loaves Hard Bread (not readily available in the United States; see Source of Special Ingredients)
  • 1 cup salt pork


  1. Place salt cod in a saucepan, cover with water, and allow to soak overnight. Place Hard Bread in another saucepan, cover with water, and allow this to soak overnight also.
  2. Make fish: Drain salt cod and return to saucepan. Refill saucepan with fresh water, heat to simmering, and cook, covered, for 20 minutes. Drain, flake the fish into serving-sized pieces, and arrange with Hard Bread (called brewis ) on a serving platter.
  3. Make brewis (Hard Bread): Do not drain Hard Bread. Heat over medium-low heat until water simmers. Simmer, covered, for about 15 minutes. Drain and place cooked Hard Bread, known as brewis , on a serving platter with fish. Place the platter, loosely covered, in the oven on the lowest setting to keep warm.
  4. Make scrunchions: Dice the salt pork into small cubes and sauté them in a skillet until golden brown.
  5. Serve the fish and brewis, topped with scrunchions.
Serves 6 to 8.
