Portugal has hundreds of codfish recipes and some of the most famous are : Codfish Brás Style, Codfish with Cream, Codfish with Onions, Codfish in the Oven and much more.
The market is divided in three main areas, the corridor of fresh vegetables, fresh fish and meat and an area of several restaurants and coffee shops.
The local market in Lisbon has also a huge diversity of fruits and vegetables, where colors and smell is a powerful and unique experience.
