    This was a hit at my house. Even hubby who sneers at salt cod liked it.

    I don't know if my vote counts because I changed so much. . . but anyway, it was so tasty! I didn't add bacon, so I added a cajun spice blend for some kick and saltiness. And I only used egg whites. And I only had a red pepper on hand, not green. But this made for a delicious high protein, high antioxidant, low fat meal that I will make again.
