Bacalao ng mga Caviteño is a proud recipe of Cavite. Usually served in Holy Week or Araw ng Pangilin sa pagkain ng karne (Meat Fasting). Bacalao is a spanish word that means  dried Codfish or labahita in tagalog.

When I checked Wikepedia Bacalao is a coined word that originated from the word “Bacalhau”. Bacalao or Bacalhau is a dried codfish specifically from Portugal and Brazil. It is probably from the influence of Spaniards invasion that was adapted by our ancestors for many years. An amazing heritage recipe of Cavite.
