    My Private Note


    Serves: 4-6


    codfish ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup salt
    • 6 fresh codfish steaks, sliced 3/4 inch thick

    Egg Sauce

    Alternate Garnish


    1. 1
      If you don't have a long, narrow fish poacher, an enamel roasting pan 5 inches deep will do just as well.
    2. 2
      Fill the pan with water to a depth of 4 inches and add 1/2 cup of salt.
    3. 3
      Bring to a boil (over 2 burners, if necessary), reduce the heat slightly and gently slide the cod slices into the water with a spatula.
    4. 4
      Lower the heat until the water is bubbling slightly and simmer the fish for about 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Be careful not to overcook or the fish will disintegrate. Remove the slices with a slotted spatula and drain them on a linen napkin or dish towel.
    6. 6
      Arrange cod attractively on a heated platter and serve with egg sauce.
    7. 7
      Egg Sauce:.
    8. 8
      Melt the butter in a 1 to 11/2 quart enamel or stainless-steel saucepan.
    9. 9
      Remove from the heat, beat in 1/4 cup of the stock in which you poached the fish and stir in the chopped egg, tomato, parsley and chives.
    10. 10
      Add salt and pepper to taste. Heat almost to boiling point, pour into a sauceboat, and serve with the cod.
    11. 11
      If you prefer, you can simply pour melted butter over the cod and garnish it with lemon slices and parsley.
    12. 12
      In Norway, this dish is often accompanied by raw diced carrots, sprinkled with lemon juice, and new potatoes.

      Made as written for ZWT6 & this is such a terrific find for us. DH is a recreational fisherman & has a friend who keeps our freezer well-supplied w/cod, but this recipe is all about the sauce & it is outstanding. This is a simple dish to make, but the flavor of the sauce is complex & restaurant-worthy in my view. I am very glad I found your recipe & I expect it will grace our table & please our guests many times. Thx for posting this winner. :-)
