They used to call it “poor man’s food” because it was cheap to buy. Our grannies were able to feed and satisfy a big family with a little codfish and only few kilos of potato… Its value and its wonderful taste are not to be questioned! In this recipe we keep it simple and beautiful. Add as much lemon as you want!
