  • 7 February 1851. Gomes de Sá was the son of a rich 19th century cod trader in Porto. The family fortune dwindled as there was a devastating fire in the warehouse. José then had to find a job at Restaurante Lisbonense, a restaurant in downtown Porto where he created this recipe. Gomes de Sá was not only a cod trader but also a food connoisseur. He used a well-known recipe for bolinhos de bacalhau or cod fish cakes and with the same ingredients (minus the flour) decided to create a new recipe. Bacalhau Gomes de Sá was born.
