Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a large pot, add the codfish and cover with 1 gallon of water. Bring it to a boil and cook for 10 minutes to remove the salt. Drain the cod and break it into small flakes with a spoon. Set aside.
  2. In a large frying pan heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the green peppers, onion, tomatoes, and culantro and cook for 2 minutes. Add the codfish, bay leaves, red bell peppers, tomato paste, and capers. Cook until the vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Add the boiled potatoes and cook until heated through, about 2 more minutes. 
  3. Garnish with cilantro. Serve with rice or cooked plantains, if desired.
  4. Serving suggestion: white rice or cooked plantains.

Cook’s Note

*Culantro can be found in specialty Latin markets. Recao or cilantro may also be used, but if these ingredients are substituted, double the amount called for.
