    thank you for this great recipe - got me to my mom's version easily. for anyone with a bit more time, substitute fresh scallion (green onion and 2 gloves of fresh garlic instead of the powdered variety. also these days , codfish is not so salty so that extended prep is not really necessary, just boil the cod, run some cold water over it , then flake it. a trick- rub pieces together to flake the fish - works beautifully. oh, and mind the scotch bonnet pepper - maybe a half or so and leave out the seeds! that'll hurt. nice and easy recipe. thank you!
