Fish is commonly associated with fresh, white wine that balances intense flavours. But cod, due to its creamy texture, pairs well with white or red.

A fresh, vibrant and exuberant wine with good acidity, Quinta dos Murças Minas is perfect to accompany dishes with intense flavours.

Therefore, we suggest serving this cod dish, which Ana Maria prepares for us so lovingly, with Quinta dos Murças Minas. An unexpected combination that will help you surprise your guests.

  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Extra virgin olive oil (suggestion: Esporão Selecção)

Preparation

Begin by preparing the cod: dry the 4 cod slices after soaking. If possible, roast them on a barbecue of vine leaves, until golden.

After roasting, reserve the cod

and let cool. Meanwhile, sauté the turnip greens.

Remove the skin and fish bones, and separate the pieces into thin strips. Spread the cod on the bottom of an oven dish. Cover with olive oil to taste.

Cover the cod with a layer of sautéed turnip greens. Slice the boiled eggs and place over the turnip.

Finally, spread the cornbread evenly to cover the egg.
