What You Will Need
750 g codfish meat
1,5 kg potato
0,5 dl olive oil
5 dag onion
15 dag tomato juice
1 dl white wine
1 clove of garlic
Codfish Goulash Preparation
The dried codfish should be submerged in water for 24 hours before cooking. Change the liquid two times in that period. Also, be aware that it will release a very strong smell, so do it in the isolated room.
Once the fish meat is ready for cooking, decant it and thermally process for one hour. Remove the bones from codfish and chop the fish on small pieces. Keep approximately 1 dl of water in which you cooked the meal for broth. It will be used in the future.
On a larger pan, pour some olive oil and fry minced onion and garlic until they become glass-like. Add cooked codfish with potato (previously chopped on slices). Next, insert tomato juice, white wine, parsley and laurel leaf, together with the broth we mentioned earlier. Once all these treasures are cooked for 30 minutes, you will end the preparation of codfish goulash.
