My aunt Angelita’s cod pie

Author Diana Roitegui Igual


  • 200 g onion
  • 200 g leek white part only
  • 200 g potato
  • 600 g flaked salty cod
  • 200 g butter
  • 100 g homemade tomato sauce
  • 400 ml liquid cream
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Tronchon cheese


  • First desalt the cod.
  • Place under a running tap and gently rub the cod with the fingers to remove the salt.
  • Place the cod in a bowl covered with cold water and leave in the refrigerator for 12 hours.
  • Remove, drain and cover with cold water and place into the refrigerator.
  • Repeat this process twice.
  • Once desalted, dry well on a kitchen towel, so it does not release water during preparation.
  • Cut the onion and leek in brunoise and slowly fry with butter until they become soft.
  • Remove and reserve.
  • In the same butter fry the potatoes until soft.
  • Meanwhile, fry the cod in a pot with olive oil at 70 C°, without allowing the oil to reach a boil.
  • Once the cod is cooked, add to the other ingredients (potato, leek and onion) in the pan used to fry the vegetables, allowing the flavors to mix well.
  • Next add the homemade tomato sauce, and allow to cook for a few minutes and lastly add the cream and allow to cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Transfer to an earthenware casserole dish, sprinkle with grated Tronchon cheese and grill.
  • When the cheese toping has a golden color the dish is ready
