TIPS FOR THIS RECIPE

1. If the cod and the potatoes start to brown too much cover with aluminum foil.

2. We usually bake the cod and the potatoes at 180ºC (350ºF) but, if you lower the temperature to 150ºC (300ºF), despite taking longer to bake, it has the advantage of enhancing the flavors much more and the meat gets more tender.

3. If you have leftovers, store the cod and the potatoes in the fridge in a properly covered container (to prevent the growth of microorganisms). To avoid drying out the cod, do not reheat the food in the oven, reheat it in the microwave.
