Preparation Rice with cod and cauliflower:

1 First we prepare the salmorreta: We put a little oil in a pan and when it is hot we add the washed ñoras, chopped and without seeds, we fry them a little and then we add the 34 peeled garlic that we also fry until golden brown.

2 Next, add the chopped tomato and fry everything for about 10 minutes. Finally we add the parsley, we fry it 2 – 3 minutes and we crush the sauce with a blender until it is made into a paste, we reserve it until we are going to use it.

3 We put a casserole or paella on the fire with a little oil and add 23 whole cloves of garlic and fry until golden brown, add the pieces of cod and lightly fry, then remove them to a plate with the garlic and we reserve.

We continue …

4 In the same oil add the chopped cauliflower and fry it until it is a little golden, stirring often, then add the chopped onion and fry it as well, add the cod mollitas (or smaller pieces of cod) and brown them a little , we add the saffron and toast it for a few seconds.

5 We also add the salmorreta and mix very well with the rest of the ingredients and then add the rice, stir very well and cook the whole for 2 minutes, add the stock or fish stock; We distribute the rice very well and wait for it to start to boil, rectify the salt and place the cod that we have reserved in an orderly fashion.

6 Cook over a higher heat for about 5 minutes and then cook 13 more minutes over low heat, turn off the heat and let it rest for 2 – 3 minutes. We just need to sprinkle with chopped parsley on top and serve with aioli sauce, ready to enjoy. Try it you will love it !!
