Delicious and Crispy Pan-Fried Potatoes with Codfish

Crispy Pan-Fried Potatoes with Codfish

Crispy Pand-Fried Potatoes with Codfish is a quick, one-pot, and delicious meal to make on busy weeknights.

Codfish or codfish is more available in many markets than before. A simple codfish recipe with tomatoes with boiled plantains might be ideal, but why not make it with potatoes instead?

Fresh codfish cooks very quickly. It is one of those types of fish that needs a few minutes to cook. Available in most markets, it makes an excellent quick meal.

Crispy Pan-Fried Potatoes with Codfish

Pan-frying food is not difficult.

When pan-frying potatoes, patience, a good pan, good oil, the correct type of potatoes, salt, and pepper are all you need. Crispy Pan-Fried Potatoes with Codfish is a meal that is best cooked using a nonstick pan. Preparing the dish in one pan saves time, but the ingredients absorb the flavors of one another.

How to make the potatoes

Crispy pan-fried potatoes are better than deep-fried potatoes because there is no need to worry about excess oil. I don’t usually have a preference for the type of potatoes to make this dish; whatever I have, I use.

I don’t see the point of making pan-fried potatoes with a particular type of potato when I usually remove the skin. To make it easier, I do not soak the potatoes in salted water.

What to do with The Codfish

The fresh codfish needs only a quick soak in water and vinegar to be cleaned. Then, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and hot pepper flakes are added to the finished recipe. All ingredients are fried to a crisp in the same pan.

Ingredients needed to make the recipe

  • Potatoes are peeled and cut into small cubes. Use russet, Idaho, red, or white.
  • Extra virgin olive oil is always good to use in cooking.
  • Fresh garlic clove is always better.
  • Sweet mini peppers sliced – use a combination of red, yellow, or orange mini peppers.
  • Red onion adds tons of flavors to potatoes and seafood in general.
  • Codfish must use fresh, cut-in cubes.
  • Water: room temperature
  • Vinegar: use white vinegar to clean the fish
  • Garlic powder for added flavor for the sauce
  • Onion powder, a little bit, goes a long way.
  • Kosher salt is always good for cooking and baking purposes.
  • Paprika, sweet, smoked, or hot, it doesn’t matter.
  • NouBess Hot and Spicy Sauce or Hot pepper flakes for that zing flavor.
  • Freshly ground black pepper, the freshness in seafood is wonderfully tasty.

How to make Crispy Pan-Fried Potatoes with Codfish

  • Peel the potatoes into small cubes and set them aside. Put oil in a large nonstick pan, preferably over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add potatoes. Once the potatoes start to turn brown, keep stirring while cooking until all sides are brown. Add salt and pepper. If the pieces are cooking too fast, turn down the heat to allow all of them to cook evenly. Only turn the heat up to make the potatoes crispier. Cooking time may take between 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the size and type of potatoes. When cooked and crispy, remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Add garlic, onions, and sweet pepper to the pan. Add additional oil if necessary. Fry ingredients until they are cooked but still crispy and slightly brown. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Before adding codfish to the pan, rinse with water and vinegar and pat dry. Cut fish into cubes, a little bit larger than the potatoes. Add all ingredients and mix. Add codfish to a hot pan with a small amount of oil if necessary. Fry pieces until brown on all sides. Codfish must be thoroughly pat dried to avoid any excess water while it is pan-frying.
  • Add potatoes, onions, and peppers to the pan and stir. Fry all ingredients together for about 5 minutes. Taste, adjust the seasoning, and serve hot with steamed greens.

This fish recipe does not take long because the potatoes and the codfish are cut small for fast cooking.
