     Codfish Stew (or a very good soup base)

Category   Salads - Soups - Sidedishes
Sub Category   None
Preptime   1 hr

1/2 pound salt cod, soaked overnight
1/3 cup Portuguese or EVOO
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
Bay leaves
Paprika to taste
3 large tomatoes plus diced can tomatoes
Garlic cloves to taste
1/4 cup white wine
2 cubed potatoes
6 cups of water
Cilantro or parsley to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
Garlic powder to taste
Bell peppers to taste
Could also add carrots and/or cabbage

Soak the cod overnight, change the water at least once. Heat the olive oil in a 5-qt pot over medium-high heat. Saute onion and bell peppers until soft and translucent about 5 minutes. Stir in bay leaf, paprika, garlic powder; add tomatoes and garlic, stir around. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook until the tomatoes are partially dissolved into the mix. We used our tomatoes plus about 1/3 of a can of diced tomatoes. Pour in the wine and simmer for 1 minute.
Add the potatoes and the water. Cover and bring to boil. Simmer until the potatoes are almost done, about 15-20 minutes. Add the cilantro/parsley and the salt cod. Continue to simmer until the fish is opaque and the potatoes are cooked, about 15-20 minutes.
Could make this soup base and use with any kind of seafood, pork etc. Extremely flavorful.

Serve with rustic bread
