Bakalar (Dried Cod)
Type of cod is a fish which is caught in the cold waters of Norway, where it is also dried. Then imported into Croatia, where it is prepared in different ways, of which one is white dried cod.

Soak the bakalar in cold water for 48 hours, changing the water every eight hours. Peel the skin off and flake the fish. Remove the bones and the brown gut section.
Cook the bakalar in water in a large pot for 2-3 hours over a medium heat. Cook potatoes separately. Drain both well.

Place both into a large bowl and add parsley, salt, pepper, oil and garlic and mix until the dish is almost a paste containing lumps of potato
