After 72 hours of soaking - to take the salt out - I shall cook this tonight - slow food - entirely good - in a rich tomato sauce - lots of fresh herbs - more olive oil than you can imagine - garlic cooked in its skin - then dumped - rosemary is particularly good - with salt cod - boiled potatoes - hopefully - job done. I don't take the skin off the cod - it adds a lovely gelatinous quality to the sauce - when you want to serve them as fillets - helps keep the fish together - most recipes have you flake it - not for me. Served with chopped boiled eggs - nice - granted - doesn't look that appetising - how wrong you are. I.

I can't get into fish. Lemon Sole is the only fish I can eat. I have been meaning to try a Dover Sole at a posh restaurant or Cornish Sole.

Leftovers ...

The other night I made up a nice chicken thigh stew, bunging anything I could find into it and eventually dropping a can of tomatoes in. Unintentially, it was gorgeous! Perfect balance of saltiness from the bouillon and sweetness from the carrots and peppers.

Anyway, lots of sauce left over ...

Tonight, I popped in some udon noodles, prawns and chorizo. Some chillies, too. Really good!

Was very good
Really good looking food, there - stuff you want to eat!

I like those potatoes. I do them like that quite often, just olive oil over. Sometimes, I pop in some slices of lemon mixed in. That gives 'em a nice twist, especially if they're going to be served with something fatty.

When the Norwegian fishing boats used to land at North Shields in the 1970’s they all had fish hanging by their tails drying in the wind , dangling on a rope suspended between the forward and aft mast , a staple part of their diet , bacalao of course very popular in Spain and Portugal .
I love wind dried cod! If it gets really dried out, it's great as is with butter spread over it. Takes some chewing. I think that's how Icelanders eat it. That's what I got served over there, so guess it's supposed to be done like that :D
