|Bacalao a la Vizcaina|
Boil the potatoes in a separate pan Set a large cooking pan in mid-high heat Add the olive oil and fry 4 whole garlic cloves until brown, then discard the garlic Add the cans of cut tomatoes, onion and the pressed garlic to the oil and mix well Once the sauce has boiled for a while, add the Bacalao while braking it apart with your hands Add the slices of red pepper, green olives, capers, and bay leaves to the pan Add 3-4 dashes of vinegar from the chili can for flavor, a lot more if you like it hot Boil for a maximum of 20 minutes, testing the fish to make sure it does not get hard by over cooking it Add the potatoes and serve with the large chilis and French bread on the side Tips: The best Bacalao is imported from Norway and it is less salty and softer than the others.
When you add the tomatoes to the frying oil be careful. It may jump towards you and burn you.
The easiest and fastest way to peel garlic is to wrap it in rubber, and roll it back and forth a few times. We use a rubber husband, it takes us 2 seconds to peel a garlic clove.
