DIRECTIONS

  • Place the cod in a large glass bowl, add enough cold water to cover; soak at least 12 hours, changing water twice; drain and pat dry.
  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat; add in the onion and garlic; stir 1 minute.
  • Add in about 2 tablespoons flour and stir for 1 minute.
  • Add in broth and whisk until the mixture is smooth; add in half-and-half; season with pepper and continue to whisk until the sauce thickens, about 3 minutes; then remove from heat.
  • Preheat oven to 350°; grease a 1 to 1 ½ quart casserole.
  • Cut the cod into ¼-inch strips; dredge in remaining flour, tapping off excess.
  • In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat; add the cod, cook 1 minute on each side; drain on paper towels.
  • Peel the potatoes, cut into thin discs, and arrange half the discs over the bottom of the casserole.
  • Layer half the cod over the potatoes and pour half the sauce over the top.
  • Repeat with the remaining potatoes, cod, and sauce.
  • Sprinkle cheese over the top; cover and bake 1 hour.
  • Uncover and bake until nicely browned, about 25 minutes.
