Potato & smoked cod crush


  • Cook the potatoes and garlic in a pot of lightly salted, boiling water until almost collapsing. Then drain well and peel the garlic. 
  • At the same time, cut each cod fillet in 3 crossways and place in a deep pan. Generously cover with milk and add the parsley and bay leaves. Bring to the boil and then cover.
  • Turn the heat off and leave for 10 mins, turning after 5 mins. Then remove the fish and strain the liquid.
  • Crush the potatoes and garlic with a masher (available in our online shop), adding a little of the cod poaching liquid and 3 tbsp olive oil.
  • Add the flaked fish (removing any bones), gently stir and taste for seasoning.
  • Serve with a little more oil sprinkled on top, if you like, and a green salad or your favourite green vegies on the side.
