A pairing: Bacalao con tomate.
Ingredients: 4 loins of desalted cod, 2 onions, 1 kg. of ripe tomatoes, 1 medium red pepper, half a teaspoon of sweet paprika, 3 cloves of garlic, 100 ml. of white wine, wheat flour for batter, salt and extra virgin olive oil.
- Cut the pepper, onion and garlic cloves into small cubes. Peel the tomatoes and chop them too.
- In a medium saucepan put oil to heat and add the peppers and fry until the peppers starts to soften.
- Add the onion and garlic, fry everything until tender. Add the white wine and cook a few minutes until the alcohol evaporates.
- Incorporate the tomato and a small touch of paprika. Cook for about 30 minutes over low heat stirring the sauce from time to time so that it does not stick.
- On the other hand we prepare the cod. Flour the loins and seal in a pan with olive oil.
- Add the cod to the casserole with the sauce, placing the loins with the skin down, in this way they will finish cooking well and the whole loin will remain.
- Rectify salt if necessary, remember that cod has its own salt. Let cook everything together for about 5 minutes over medium heat.
- Remove from heat and reserve. It is much tastier if served tempered.
