  • 300 g 10.5 oz salt cod
  • 1 kg 2 lbs potatoes, peeled and cut into medium size pieces
  • 4 oranges peeled, pitted and cut into wedges
  • green olives to taste pitted and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 4 hard boiled eggs cut into pieces
  • 1 onion diced
  • Olive oil
  • Salt


  • Soak the salt cod for about 24 hours (depending on its thickness)
  • Once desalinated, dry the cod using paper towel and carefully remove any of the skin or bones
  • wash and peel the potatoes and put them into a large pot covered with water
  • Cook over high heat and add a tablespoon of sea salt right when the water boils
  • Allow the potatoes to boil (about 20-25 minutes)
  • When the potatoes are halfway done, hard boil 4 eggs (10 minutes)
  • When cool, cut both the potatoes and eggs into bite sized pieces
  • In a large bowl, mix together potatoes, eggs, onion, orange slices, olives and salt cod
  • Dress with olive oil, sherry vinegar and sea salt to taste (* be careful here, as the cod itself is salty, so you may not need to add salt depending on your preferences!)
  • Enjoy!
