This Cod and Nut Appetizer is really easy to make and it won’t take up much of your time or budget ether.
It sometimes happens
that friends or family likes to “surprise” you – although today things are a little different than in the olden days where it usually was a “pleased” surprise.
Now-a-days such surprises aren’t to “pleasant” anymore because with the economy what it is today, your budget will only go so far and that’s it.
So surprises are a thing of the past and does not have any place in our buzzy lifestyles – BUT, and only but, there are still some people that does not get the message jet.
So for them we can still cook up a nice, quick and easy appetizer or rather – snacks - and even a seafood snack at that!
Not much of an ingredience list needed here.
Our ingredience for this quick snack;
½ cup olive oil
1 table spoon fresh oregano leaves
1 tablespoon fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
10 cloves garlic
150g soft blue cheese
2 tablespoons of pine nuts, toasted
2 X 28cm long thin bread sticks
200g salted cod
5 artichoke hearts in oil drained
Place the fish in a medium size bowl
and cover it with clean water.
Cover the bowl and put the fish in a freezer for at least 24 hours.
Then , drain the water off.
Place it in a pan and boil the fish in only water, no salt no seasoning,
then let it simmer for about a minute.
Once again drain the fish and rinse it under cold water.
Take a fork and flake the fish, discarding the skin and the bones.
Cut some bread-roles into thin slices and toast it both sides.
The fishmeat has a nice "grain" to it, almost like wood. If you cut the fish along the "grain" like in the photo, decorating it becomes almost a finishing-touches-type-action.
It is as if the fish tells you how to do the dressing-up.
The other nice thing about this dish is that you can dress each bite-size different…
