Cod and leeks. Those are the main ingredients of this delicious recipe from Spain. A wonderful soup. Let’s start cooking.
2 pieces of salt cod
2 potatoes, peeled and cut in pieces
4 cups vegetable broth or water
1 teaspoon parsley
1 teaspoon pimentón
1 clove of garlic, sliced
Some freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Some salt, if needed
Some extra virgin olive oil
The first thing we have to for this recipe is preparing the cod. You have to soak it in water for at least 24 hours, changing the water every three hours.
You will have to prepare the vegetables. Clean the leeks properly, making sure you get rid of all the dirt that they can have. Wash them well. Once the leeks are washed, cut them in pieces.
Start cooking putting the pieces of potato in a pan with the water or broth. At the same time, sauté the leeks in another pan using hot oil but on a low fire. Three minutes later, add the cod, that you will have broken up into small shreds previously. Add the black pepper and taste it to see if some salt is needed. Let it cook for three more minutes.
Now add the potatoes and their liquid (water or broth) to the pan with the leeks and the cod.
To finish the dish, sauté the slices of garlic in another pan with some drops of hot oil, adding the pimentón at the last moment when you remove the pan from the fire. Once you have done this, add the garlic to the main pan and serve. Enjoy!
