Delicious! My 6th time making it. I used a 15 oz can of chopped tomatoes because the fresh tomatoes don’t taste like tomatoes sometimes and I used fresh parsley. For first timers, don’t worry, there is enough liquid to cook this.

I notice u use cod fillets in your recipes.....this is the regular salted cod that needs to b soaked etc...can't use regular (COD) fish.,,.and does one have to use the wine? Previously I had asked if u had a cod fish recipe using chick peas like in layers w/potatoes eggs etc Thank u for all u do...it's really good food and so underrated ...we have only one cooking show here on PBS...Maria's Portuguese table..and I just love how people have suddenly found out about kale...duh...anyway thanks again
