Codfish in Olive Oil and Garlic Minerva

Raw material

The common codfish (Gadus morhua) is a migrating species that lives in the cold, Northern seas. It is part of the white fish family and generally has a small size, although some can have 2 meters of length and weigh 100 Kg. It feeds on smaller fish, like herring or sardine.

The codfish used by Minerva is obtained with traditional fishing methods that guarantee the environmental sustainability and protection and with MSC certification – Marine Stewardship Council.

Preserve preparation

The Minerva codfish preserve is done according to the traditional Portuguese recipe: after receiving the dried, salted codfish, it is first soaked and then cooked in steam.  Once ready, it’s manually canned and added the olive oil-based covering and a few slices of fresh garlic.

The can is sterilized by a thermal process at 118ºC, guaranteeing the safety and preservation of the product. The cans are presented individually with a weight of 120g per unit.

Conservation and harmonization

Due to being canned, it can be stored in a dry place without any need to place it in the fridge. Its preserved state allows it to be consumed once opened, avoiding the whole preparation process and without running the risk of being too salty. In case the whole content of the can is not consumed, it is recommended that the leftover is taken out and kept in the fridge for a maximum of 48 hours.

We recommend consuming this can naturally, taking advantage of the product quality and its covering oil, or in any case accompanied by garnishment to your own taste.
