DIRECTIONS

  • Soak the salt cod in a large pot of fresh water for 36 hours, under refrigeration. Change the water at least twice during the soak time.
  • Drain the fish and cut it into 2-inch chunks.
  • In a large pot, layer the sliced potatoes, onions, and cod chunks, placing the bay and rosemary in between the layers. Top with the peppers, garlic, tomatoes, 2/3 of the parsley, all the chiles and peppercorns season lightly with salt, unless using salted tomatoes. Pour the oil on top.
  • Cover the pot, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer gently for 75 minutes, without stirring. Shake the pot periodically to prevent sticking.
  • To serve, gently ladle stew into shallow bowls and sprinkle with remaining parsley. Serve with lots of good crusty bread to soak up juices.
