Brandade de Morue

Total Time:
30 min
Prep:
30 min

Yield:
6 servings

Ingredients
  • 1 clove of garlic, peeled
  • 2 pounds salt cod fillets, soaked in milk for two days and drained
  • 4 cups olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cups milk, at room temperature
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Freshly ground white pepper
  • 12 slices of (1/2-inch) French bread
  • Oil for frying
  • Freshly ground black pepper
Directions
  • Preheat the fryer. Pound the garlic in a mortar. Add the codfish and pound both to a soft paste. At this point, start incorporating the olive oil a scant teaspoonful at a time, alternating with drops of milk without ever ceasing to stir rapidly; the brandade gains in fine texture through rapid stirring. If it becomes too thick, add more oil and milk. Complete the seasoning by adding a few drops of lemon juice and white pepper. A brandade should have the consistency of mashed potatoes (which it looks like). Fry the slices of bread in the hot oil until golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. Serve the brandade with the fried bread.
