|55 min.||37 min.||1 hour 32 min.|
|1||The day before, desalt 400 g salt-cod by soaking in several changes of cold water.
On the day, cook the cod by placing in cold water and bringing this up to a gentle simmer. A good way to be sure it is properly cooked is to measure the temperature in the centre. As soon as the fish reaches 140°F (60°C), it is cooked.
|2||Put the potatoes straight into the cooking water from the cod and boil until soft.
|3||Prepare and chop 70 g shallot.||5 min.|
|4||Pour 2 tablespoons olive oil into a frying pan on medium heat. When hot, add the shallot, salt and pepper. Cook for 1 or 2 minutes without colouring.||2 min.|
|5||Break the cod into flakes, discarding the skin and bones.
Peel the potatoes and chop into small pieces.
|6||Put the cod and shallots into a food-processor bowl.||2 min.|
|7||Add the potatoes and blend (using the blender blade) while adding the olive oil in a thin stream, until the mixture becomes a thick purée.||5 min.|
|8||Add the parsley at the end.
Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C).
|9||Spread the brandade purée in a gratin dish. You can comb the top with a fork to make it more attractive.||5 min.|
|10||Bake for about 30 minutes until nicely browned.||25 min.|
|11||Your brandade is ready. You can serve it with a mixed green salad or just corn salad and a good french dressing (vinaigrette).|
|12||Another way of cooking/serving: as pan-fried fish cakes.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large frying pan on high heat. Arrange tart/dessert rings in the pan.
|13||Fill the rings with the brandade purée, pressing the mixture down gently.
Leave the bottom to brown before removing the rings...
|14||...then turn the cakes over to brown on the other side.
Serve one fish cake per person, with salad (for example, like the earlier version).
