Pilpil Salt Cod


Soak the slices of salt cod in cold water for 36 hours, changing the water every 8 hours. Carefully trim the pieces of fish, removing any bones, and dry with a cloth. Cut the garlic into wafer-thin slices and place in a wide pan with the Spanish olive oil and the chili pepper. Brown lightly then remove. Place the cod pieces in the same oil and cook over a gentle flame for about 45 minutes, shaking constantly to bind the oil and the gelatin released by the fish. Turn up the heat for a couple of minutes and, when the mixture begins to boil, remove. Sprinkle with the garlic slices.
