As I am Portuguese naturally I love my cod. This is a delicious and very simple way to make cod, even the kids enjoy it. It's a type of casserole dish, my mother passed this receipe down to me.She use to do it in the traditional red ceramic dishes, and cook in the firestove. I still use the red ceramic dish, but had to improvise with an electric stove.I hope you all enjoy it as much as we all do.
- 4 fillets salt cod fish
- 1 lb potato
- 4 big onions, sliced
- 4 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup olive oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 bay leaf
- salt, to your own taste
- pepper, to your own taste
- 1⁄2 cup flour
- 1⁄3 cup oil
- 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
- Rinse cod under running cold water.
- Place the cod in a large container filled with cold water, and soak for 24 hrs, changing water several times.
- Next day remove cod from water and pat dry with a towel.
- Meanwhile, peel and slice the onions and chop the garlic.
- In a frying pan heat up the olive oil and simmer the onions and garlic and also the bayleaf, salt, and pepper to your own taste.
- Now that your cod is dry, pass it through flour, and then the beaten eggs and fry it in a separate pan on both side till cooked.
- Turn on your stove to 375, place the cod on the bottom of a casserole dish and cover with the onion mixture, place in oven for about 10-12 minute no longer, or the cod will turn out to dry.
- While this is being done, peel and slice your potatoes in cubes and fry till golden (you can use more potatoes if wished).
- Remove your cod from the oven, and mix in you cooked potatoes, mix well and sprinkle with the parsley (when I don't have parsley I use fresh coriander.).
