Smoked cod in onion and white wine, Spanish style


Fish is on the menu this week, may-be in anticipation of more exotic summer delights…

Ingredients list for two people:
1 large fillet of smoked cod
2 thinly sliced onions
1 handful of cold-water prawns
Pinch of smoked paprika
Pinch of cayenne pepper (or chilli powder)
1 glass of dry white wine
2 Bay leaves

Sweat the onions until tender in a shallow cast iron pan with a bit of olive oil. Add the fish and pour enough wine to cover. Add the bay leaves, the spices and simmer on low heat for 20 min with the lid on. Serve with fried potatoes or a potato gratin.

Smoked cod is both healthy and relatively cheap so this is a perfect dish for entertaining on a budget! This recipe is also very good with Pollack (Colin).

There are lots of variations on that theme in the Spanish cuisine but this I love for its simplicity and robust flavours.
