Salt Cod Avocado Cucumber Stack is a delicious brunch dish that will serve a large group of family and friends.
Salt Cod Avocado Cucumber Stack is a really tasty dish, its a combination of stewed salt cod with onions, garlic and tomatoes on top of one slice of bread, topped with an avocado cucumber salad.
I hosted a brunch last week for my niece, Jasmine, brainchild of Fanci Fantastic. It was a small birthday celebration, brunch for eight, and Salt Cod Avocado Cucumber Stack was on the menu.
We had a lot of fun. We ate well, had plenty to drink and then hit the dance floor – also know as my large red circular area rug in my living room.
I had some dietary restrictions to consider:
- 1 guest: no meat;
- 2 guests: no pork; and
- 1 guest: no salmon.
Clearly, I had to come up with dishes that would work for all. Here’s the menu:

Potato Zucchini Frittata served with Spinach Arugula Tomato Salad with Beef Bacon
Rum Soaked Fruit Salad with Mango, Pear and Blackberries
Salt cod is a dried and salted cod and is also known as bacalao. There is some prep work to do when cooking with salted cod. The salt needs to be soaked away and the salt cod should be cooked until tender and easily flaked. Very often, recipes will require soaking the salt cod overnight to remove the salt. For this dish I prefer to do the soaking just before using.
I am a great lover of salt cod and have been eating it most of my life. I have some other recipes using salt cod on the blog that might interest you – Salt Cod Fish Cakes and Thai Green Salt Cod Curry, check them out.
