Put the cod in a saucepan with water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. When starts boiling, reduce to low heat and cook for 6 to 7 minutes. Turn off the heat, drain the cod with a skimmer and let cool slightly. Remove the skin and bones and flake the cod with a fork; set aside.
In another saucepan with water and a small onion, cook the shrimp for 5 to 6 minutes. Turn off the heat, let cool and peel the shrimp. Cut them into pieces, season with lemon juice and set aside.

Put the olive oil, chopped garlics and the chopped onion in a saucepan and saute over low heat until the onion start to turn golden brown. Add the flaked cod and the shrimp and season with some pepper. Stir and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the potatoes and mix gently with a spoon. Remove briefly the pan from heat and pour the beaten egg. Mix well and put the pan back over low heat for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
