Boiled Salt Cod

How to make Boiled Salt Cod.

Ingredients: Serves 4-6

  • 1-1.25 kilos (2 to 2-3/4 lbs) salted codfish, soaked for 24 hours
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • A few sprigs of parsley, finely minced
  • Olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Simmer the pre-soaked salt cod in enough water to cover for 15 minutes.
  2. Gently remove the cod from its poaching liquid onto a cutting board.
  3. Pat dry with paper towels and remove any bones you may find, then divide it into small pieces, discarding the skin if any.
  4. Arrange the cod on a serving platter.
  5. Taste a bit of the fish to see how salty it is.
  6. Now nap the fish completely with a little sauce you will have made from whisking together the minced garlic, parsley, lemon juice, pepper and, if the fish needs it, a pinch of salt.
  7. Serve still warm or at room temperature, with boiled or steamed potatoes as a side if you like.
