Bacalao (Salt Cod)
by Nancy Trevino
This recipe was sent to me by Nancy Trevino, who got it from her
grandmother, Matea Meabe
2 lbs salt cod
1/4 C. olive oil
2 medium onions
1 sm. can tomato sauce
2 cloves garlic
1/2 C. minced parsley
1 can (4oz) sliced pimentos
1/2 C. dry white wine
Wash the cod, changing the water three or four
times. Soak it overnight in water to cover.
Drain. Cut the fish into 2-inch pieces. Place
the pieces in cold water to cover, bring to boil,
and drain well.
Chop the onions and garlic and fry them, along
with the drained pimentos, in olive oil. When the
vegetables are tender stir in the tomato sauce,
parsley and wine. Cover and simmer over very low
heat for 30 minutes. Place the cod in the sauce
and simmer, uncovered, 30 to 45 minutes, or until
the fish flakes easily. Serves 4.
