Mexican Style Cod


  • 1 kilo cod of good quality dipped in water at least 1 day earlier changing the water constantly to desalt it
  • 1 kilo of red tomato mature, roast, ground and stung
  • 4 bare and cut cloves of garlic
  • 2 cut onions
  • 2 cups of cut parsley
  • 2 cups of tomato paste

  • 1 can olives with bone
  • 2 bottles of capers
  • 6 Guindillas Chilis

Soak the cod overnight to remove some of its natural salt. Change the water several times. On the following day cover it with clean water and boil it until it is cooked; drain it, crumble it, and remove the thorns.

In a separate pan with plenty of olive oil, add the garlic, onion, red tomato purée, and the coriander. Cover and allow it to simmer on low heat until it seasons. Add salt and pepper to the taste. Add the olives, capers, chopped potatoes, and the pieces of cod. Cook 10 more minutes, adding a little water if it is necessary. Finally add the chilis.

Adorn with strips of red pepper.

Some people add pine nuts and pealed, toasted almonds.
