Preparation

  1. Once you have soaked the cod in water,  put it in a container with the milk, cover the container and put it in the refrigerator for 8 to 10 hours (remove from the refrigerator about 1 hour before cooking).
  2. Preheat the oven to 170°C or 340°F.
  3. Peel and cut the potatoes in cubes.
  4. Peel the garlic, crush it and chop it.
  5. Arrange the parsley on the bottom of the baking dish.
  6. In a pan, put the peppercorns and cod with the skin up, but do not overlap (if necessary, repeat this step).
  7. Cover the cod with the milk, cook over medium heat without boiling. Before it comes to a boil, remove the cod and place it on the baking dish over the parsley still keeping the skin up.
  8. At this stage season the milk on the pan you cooked the cod with salt, add the potatoes and cook over medium heat.
  9. When the potatoes are almost cooked but not there yet, put them around the codfish in the baking dish.
  10. Add about half of the milk from the pan to the baking dish.
  11. Add the garlic around the cod and potatoes and the olive oil mostly over the cod.
  12. Spread the butter over the cod steaks and sprinkle with the black pepper.
  13. Bake for about 30 minutes (you don't want the cod to get to dry).
