A NOTE ON MEASUREMENTS

We work with chefs from all around the world, which is why we include both imperial (cups/ounces) and metric (grams) measurements. To achieve best results, we highly recommend that you utilize a kitchen scale and follow the metric measurements when possible.

PREPARATION

FOR THE SPANISH COD 


Scrub the potatoes; do not peel. Cut into small cubes, and put into a saucepan with enough water to cover the cubes. Cover the pan, and cook about 10 minutes.


Meanwhile, saute the garlic, carrots and onion in hot oil in a nonstick skillet until the onion softens.


Stir in the tomato paste, wine, water, thyme and hot pepper flakes. Cover, reduce the heat, and simmer while the rest of the meal cooks.


When the potatoes are cooked, add them to the onion mixture.


Wash and dry the scrod, and cut the pieces in half. Place in the skillet, under the vegetables and sauce, and cook according to the Canadian rule: measure at the thickest part, and cook 10 minutes to the inch.


Sprinkle parsley on top and serve.


FOR THE ARUGULA SALAD 


Wash and dry the arugula. Wash, dry and cut the pear. Whisk the oil and vinegar in a serving bowl; stir in the garlic.


Add the arugula and pear to the bowl, and mix to coat the greens and pear well.
