Preparation: 24H before cooking rinse the salt off your cod and cover it water in a dish.
Change the water 5 times throughout the next 24H, that’s the usual time for most of the salt to be taken out.
Peel and rinse your potatoes, cut them in half and boil them with the milk, the cream, the peeled garlic and the bay leaves.
Once cooked take your potatoes out and let them cool down.
Filter the milk/cream and keep it.
Meanwhile cook the cod into a pan filled with cold water. Note the cooking time is short.
Usually when water starts boiling the fish is cooked.
Remove the cod out and that check the meat falls apart easily. Never leave the fish into boiling water, it hardens it.
Separate the fish meat into small filaments removing all the bones.
Then pour the olive oil little by little while stirring the fish meat.
Once it is done add the potatoes and about half of the milk/cream.
Add a little hot pepper and mix it all with a fork until it becomes smooth and homogeneous.
Taste to check if seasoning suits you. Spread the breadcrumbs on top and grill it shortly just before serving with a green salad.
