  • 1 1/2 pounds salt cod
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 cups thinly sliced onions
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 pounds of waxy potatoes, 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 4 hard-boiled eggs
  • 8 black olives
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley leaves, finely chopped


  • Soak the codfish in cold water to cover for 24 hours, changing the water from time to time. Then, drain.

  • Shred the codfish into small strips, removing any bones. Then, set it aside.

  • In a pan of medium heat, pour in 1/4 of the oil. Set the onions and garlic over the pan. Season with salt and pepper. Saute the ingredients until lightly browned, about 6 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Grease a large ovenproof dish with 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Season the potatoes with salt and pepper.

  • Arrange half of the potatoes on the bottom of the dish. Add a portion of the salt cod over the potatoes. Lay half of the onion mix over the salt cod. Pile up the onion mixture with more salt cod.

  • Put another level of potatoes over the top of the salt cod. Sprinkle the entirety of the pan with the final quarter cup of oil.

  • Cook in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until golden. Place on a serving dish.

  • Serving Suggestions: Serve with sliced eggs, olives, and parsley.
