Cod loin 1.25 kg

For the cod:

  • Confit the garlic and the dried chilli pepper with virgin olive oil on a low heat. Once browned set aside for later.
  • Once the temperature of the oil reduces, add the cod (skin side up, making sure the skin does not touch the saucepan) and allow to simmer on a low heat.
  • When the cod is cooked, allow everything to cool and separate the cod from the oil.

For the pil-pil:

  • Emulsify the pil-pil sauce with a metal whisk or with a strainer.
  • Add the pil-pil sauce to the cod and heat everything together.


  • Place the cod loin on a plate and cover with the pil-pil sauce.
  • Decorate with fried garlic, chilli peppers and parsley.
