Codfish in blue mold

Bacallà amb verdures – Codfish with vegetables

Inspired again by the Catalan kitchen, this time we want to the the following recipe codfish with vegetables. Codfish is dried fish and was essential food for sailors and soldiers. Because of its preservation, it is non-perishable. Try it out and enjoy your meal!

Ingredients:

800 g of cod
1 lemo
100 g of flour
olive oil
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
2 small eggplants
2 small courgettes
2 onions
2 big tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic
salt and pepper
1 branch of rosemary

Colourful vegetables

After washing, cut the vegetables into small pieces.

Preparation:

Squeeze a little bit of lemon juice on the codfish (fresh or well watered) and then roll it in flour. Fry from all sides in hot olive oil.

Cut the vegetables into small cubes. Heat olive oil in a wok. Sauté onions and peppers. Then, add the rest of the vegetables and the garlic. Let it cook for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Fill the vegetables in an ovenproof dish and put the fish with rosemary on top of it. Let it cook in the oven at 180°C for 10 minutes until firm to bite.


Traditionally, the vegetables ragout is served on top of the codfish. However, we do it the other way round and put the fish on top of the vegetables.
