Salted Cod fish with tomato

Hello everyone, today I want to share with you how I make my salted cod fish. What you will need for this recipe

Salted cod fish (1/2 pound)

2 medium size tomatoes

1 small onion

1 small green bell pepper

1 tsp of garlic

2 tsp of tomato paste

1 lime

Some seasonings
First thing I do whenever I’m making any salted fish, is to place it in a big bowl of water the day before. The idea of doing this is to get rid of all the salt which the fish has been preserved in. Β I then boil the fish for 5 to 10 minutes to make sure I got rid of the the salt, before cooking it. Now. Let’s get right into it. Shall we?

Next step, I throw out the water, then lay the fish on paper towel.( You can cut them in tiny pieces, or shred them with a fork)

Heat oil to medium heat, add the fish and fry for 5 min


Add seasonings ( I used all purpose seasonings) yes! I love this stuff. I also add some turmeric powder, and some cayenne pepper.

After frying for 5 min, set aside.


Immediately start working on the veggies. Heat oil to medium heat, then add onions and garlic

Stir for 2 minutes, then add jalapeΓ±os or bell pepper ( whatever you prefer) and tomato paste

And finally your tomatoes, then cook until onions, pepper and tomatoes are soft.

Add a little water to get things simmering nicely


You can at this point taste it and adjust with salt and pepper ( or any seasoning of your choice) then, add the fish and the lemon juice.

Cook for another 5 minute and Cod fish is done.

Serve with bread, pita, rice or whatever you desire. I had mine with white rice and avocado and it was delicious.

I hope you like this recipe. Let me know if Β you try it.

Thank you for stopping by, and please come back.
