Ingredients

8

(1 cup)

Servings

  • 1 pound boneless skinless dry salt cod, rinsed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Red Pepper, Crushed
  • 1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 4 cups cooked cubed peeled potatoes, (about 1 pound)
  • 1 jar (4 ounces) sliced pimientos, undrained
  • 1/3 cup sliced pimiento-stuffed olives
  • 2 McCormick® Bay Leaves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick® Oregano, Whole Mexican
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Instructions

  • Pour cold water over cod in large bowl. Cover. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or up to 2 days, changing water 3 times a day, until most of the salt is removed. (The less time the cod is soaked, the saltier it will be.) Drain. Break cod into large flaky pieces. Set aside.

  • Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add onion, garlic, almonds and red pepper; cook and stir 3 minutes or until onions are softened. Stir in tomatoes. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low; simmer, uncovered, 15 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated.

  • Gently stir in flaked cod, cooked potatoes, pimientos, olives, bay leaves and oregano until well blended. Bring to boil. Cover. Reduce heat to low; simmer 15 minutes longer or until cod is tender. Stir in parsley. Serve over rice, if desired.
