Tips for a baked cod with potatoes and yummy onion

  • This dish is prepared in “two stages”. The garnish goes to the oven first and then the fish. Therefore, if you run out of time, you can leave the potatoes and onions ready in advance. Then it will be time to add the cod when you need it, and in 20 minutes ready to serve on the table.
  • I have given it an aromatic touch with rosemary, which is one of my favorite herbs. But we can also give it the personal touch that you like or want the most, with thyme, mint, bay leaf, etc. The beauty of the kitchen is the diversity of dishes that can be prepared, according to the tastes of each cook.
  • We will choose fresh and good quality cod loins , as it is the main ingredient. In the market you will find several options, but I recommend you make an effort and buy a good product. As for the potatoes, I don’t risk it. At home I always have Conde de Galicia Calidade Potatoes , from the A Limia region (Ourense), of the Kennebec variety and with the guarantee of the Galicia Calidade seal.
