1 pimente (small hot pepper), seeded and minced

1 spring onion, minced

1 garlic clove, minced

1 tablespoon chopped parsley

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons sherry vinegar

Fine sea salt and freshly ground white pepper


  1. Place the salt cod in cold water and soak for 3 days, refrigerated. Change the water and soak for another 24 hours, changing the water 3 times.
