Recipe Instructions

This came from one of the other cookbooks I picked up last weekend. Nice segue, eh? Inherited from Spain, this codfish dish is a favorite of the Mexicans. Soak codfish for 8 hours in enough cold water to cover it.

Drain and shred the fish. Saute the onion in the oil until it is softened. Add codfish and saute a few more minutes. Add the remaining ingredients. Simmer slowly until codfish is tender, about 1/2 hour or more.
