Preparation

  1. Soak up the cod the day before.
  2. Cook the cod slices in water, remove from the heat and keep the water.
  3. Clean the cod of bones and skins and shred it to pieces using your hands.
  4. Wash the collard greens, cut it into pieces and bring it to a boil in the water you cooked the cod in, for about 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Drain the collard greens and keep the cooking water.
  6. Open a lid on the top of the bread and scoop it out the crumb (keep the crumb aside).
  7. Add a little of the hot cooking water from cooking the cod and collard greens to the inside of the bread, just to slightly soften it.
  8. Heat the olive oil in a pan, add the garlic and onion and let it cook on low heat until the onion is translucent.
  9. Add the pepper, coriander, sweet pepper, cod and collard greens, mixing everything for a few minutes.
  10. Add bread crumbs and mix well.
  11. Sir and add a little cooking water from the cod and collard greens until you have a good consistency.
  12. Fill the bread with the crumb mix, place the lid on top and bake in a preheated oven at 200ºC or 400ºF for about 10 minutes.
