Cod in green sauce recipe
- 4 Giraldo cod loins
- Extra virgin olive oil an amount that can cover the bottom of the frying pan completely
- 4 garlic cloves
- A cup of water
- 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
- Parsley as desired
Step by step how to prepare
- First, cut the garlic cloves into very fine strips. Then, fry them on a frying pan on medium-low heat, the oil must be lukewarm so it doesn’t burn the garlic, bittering the preparation.
- When they get just a bit brown, lower the heat to low heat, add the cod loins with their skin-side up and cook for 5 minutes. Place them carefully so there is no piece of garlic below them.
- While they’re cooking, shake the frying pan helping the cod release its juice or gelatin. If the loins are thick, turn them around so they can finish cooking for 2 or 3 minutes. The mix between the olive oil and the juice of the cod is what will give the greenish color to the sauce.
- Then, in another bowl, mix the cornstarch and the water until the cornstarch dissolves well. When you notice the cod has released enough juice, add this mixture and cook for two minutes.
- Lastly, chop the parsley well into small pieces and add them to the frying pan with the cod loins and the green sauce.
