Italian Salt Cod Cooked in Tomato Sauce

December 18, 2020 / by Junko


Christmas is just around the corner♪🎄✨
We had Shihomi make a dish that is made on Chrismas Eve in Italy 🇮🇹
In Japan, many of us eat chicken or other kinds of meat for Christmas, but in Italy, it seems that many eat fish and not meat due to religious reasons. In Italy, this dish is made with “Baccala” which is cod salted and dried for preservation but here, we used fresh salted cod that is readily available in Japan.

[ Ingredients ]
350g salted cod
1 potato
10 black olive
10 grains
1/4 red paprika
70g mushroom
1/2 onion
1 garlic
200ml canned whole tomatoes
100ml water
1 tsp paprika powder
Italian parsley (for decoration)
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
black pepper
