Spaghetti With Cod Fish, Olives, Capers And Tomatoes

Prepare the Cod
Put the dried cod in a frying pan, pour the milk on top and simmer for 10 minutes. Next, remove the skin and bones and chop it coarsely. Thinly slice the dried tomatoes, finely chop the capers and chop the olives. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the garlic still in its skin, let soften and then add the cod fish. Fry over high heat and then add the wine. Let it evaporate then stir in the capers. Let the flavours blend for 5 minutes then stir in the dried tomatoes, olives, lemon zest, chopped parsley and thyme. At the end of cooking add salt and pepper to taste. Remove the garlic. Toast the breadcrumbs in a pan until brown.

Cook the Pasta
Boil the pasta in plenty of salted water and drain when slightly undercooked. Keep a little of the water the pasta was cooked in. Toss the pasta in the sauce, if necessary, add a little cooking water and a drop of extra virgin olive oil.

Turn the pasta onto a serving plate and sprinkle with toasted breadcrumbs. Enjoy your meal!
