My Favorite Cod Dish from San Sebastian | Bacalao en Salsa Verde
This Spanish Cod with Garlic and Parsley, known as Bacalao en Salsa Verde, is one of the most classic dishes that hail from Spain. But more specifically, from the beautiful city of San Sebastian in the north of Spain. Its got a ton of flavors, it´s easy to make and it´s all done in under 30 minutes.
Serve this dish next to a crunchy baguette to mop up all that delicious sauce and a bottle of Spanish wine for an instant trip to beautiful España.
To make this dish, I used Spanish Cod Fillets (10% OFF Your Order with Code ¨SPAINONAFORK10¨) from El Barquero. Truly the BEST Cod I have ever tasted. These cod fillets are already seasoned to perfection, so need to add any salt.
TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: The thickness of the cod fillets I used where 1 1/2 inch (4 cm) thick. So I fried them for 4 to 5 minutes per side. If the cod fillets you are using are thinner, go for 2 to 3 minutes per side.
