Salt Cod in Mild Chili Sauce Recipe

Salt Cod in Mild Chili Sauce Recipes

Ingredients :

2lb dried salt cod

1 onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, chopped

For the sauce:

6 dried ancho chilies

1 onion, chopped

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp ground coriander

1 serrano chili, seeded and chopped

3 tbsp corn oil

3 cups fish or chicken stock


For the garnish:

1 fresh green chili, sliced

Method :

Soak the cod in cold water for several hours, depending on how hard and salty it is. Change the water once or twice during soaking. Drain the fish and transfer it to a saucepan. Pour in water to cover. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook for about 15 minutes until the fish is tender. Drain, reserving the stock. Remove any skin or bones from the fish and cut it into 1.5 inch pieces.

Make the sauce. Remove the stems and shake out the seeds from the ancho chilies. Tear the pods into pieces, put in a bowl of warm water and soak until they are soft. Drain the soaked chilies and put them into a food processor with the onion, oregano, coriander and serrano chili. Process to a puree.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the puree, stirring, for about 5 minutes. Stir in the fish or chicken stock and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Add the prepared cod and simmer for a few minutes longer to heat the fish through and blend the flavors. Serve garnished with the sliced chili.
