INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/4 pounds prepared baccalà
  • 2 large potatoes, sliced in thin rounds
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced thinly
  • 3 tablespoons butter, chopped

  • Pinch of hot crushed pepper, optional
  • Freshly ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. Prepare and soak your baccala at least 3 days prior. View our blog post to learn How to Prepare your Christmas Baccala.
  2. Preheat your oven to 375˚F. Rinse the cod for a last time; dry it well and cut into small pieces. In a shallow casserole dish, toss the potato rounds and onion slices with the butter and olive oil. Add the baccalà and gently toss. Season with crushed red and black peppers. Cover the casserole with foil and place into the oven.
  3. Roast for about 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Add a bit of water, about 2 tablespoons, if needed, during cooking; continue to stir while cooking, but gently to avoid breaking the fish. Season with salt, if needed.
  4. Serve drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.
