Recipe

Here, salt cod (bacalao) is simmered with the fragrant Spanish aromas of garlic, bay, and saffron to a lovely tenderness

Yield: Makes 4 servings
Prep time: 20 Mins
Cooking time: 40 Mins

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2 leeks, white part only, finely sliced
  • 3 ripe tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lb 2 oz (500g) baking potatoes, peeled and diced
  • generous pinch of saffron
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1¾ lb (800g) thick-cut salt cod, soaked, drained, and cut into 4 pieces
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley

Directions

1. Heat the oil in a large, shallow flameproof casserole over medium-low heat. Add the onion and leek and cook, stirring often, about 5 minutes, until tender.

2. Stir in the tomatoes and garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add the potatoes, saffron, and bay leaves, and season well with salt and pepper.

3. Place the salt cod, skin side up, on the vegetables. Pour in the wine and 1 cup water. Bring to a simmer. Cook, shaking the casserole every 5 minutes or so to release gelatin from the fish to thicken the sauce, for about 25 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.

4. Sprinkle with parsley and serve hot, from the casserole.

Notes

Caution: soak the fish for at least 24 hrs in enough water to cover, changing the water 2-3 times to remove salt
