Cod and Vegetables with Garlic

Cabillaud et légumes à l’aïoli

Cuisine: French
Region: Provence

Cod and Vegetables with Garlic – a typical Provençal dish. Let’s do the deed without further ado, shall we? 🙂

Serves: 4
Cooking time: 45 min
You need: a bowl and a baking pan

Ingredients

  • 1 Kg (2 lbs) of cod
  • 6 potatoes, sliced
  • 1 cauliflower, separated into florets
  • 12 carrots, peeled
  • A handful of green beans, trimmed
  • 6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and halved lengthwise

For the aioli:

  • 4–6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Pepper and salt
  • 1 + 1/2 cup (glass) olive oil

Instructions

  1. Poach the cod for 45 minutes. OR, wrap it tightly in a foil and cook it in the oven (say 180C/350F).
  2. While the fish is cooking:
  3. Boil the potatoes.
  4. Steam or boil the cauliflower, the carrots and the beans just until al dente.
  5. On a serving platter, present the fish surrounded by the hard-boiled eggs, potatoes, and vegetables.
  6. Present the aioli in a separate bowl.

For the aioli:

  1. In a bowl, mash garlic with the egg yolk, pepper, and salt.
  2. Drizzle the oil in slowly, beating steadily, until the mixture thickens. (You can use a blender too).
  3. Keep it in the fridge until serving.

Notes on Cod and Vegetables with Garlic

  • It can be served as soon as it is cooked, but serving it cold is equally delicious.
  • You can add different vegetables according to your taste. There’s no hard rule here.
