   For the Codfish & Potatoes:

            – 2 packs of saltfish (or any dried salt fish)

            – 4 large potatoes, peeled and squared

            – handful of fresh thyme

  1. For thinner cuts of salt fish, wash, and soak in hot water 30 minutes before cooking.
  2. After soaking the salt fish, drain and refill with fresh water.
  3. Meanwhile, in a separate pot, boil potatoes with fresh thyme until the potatoes are halfway tender.
  4. Add salt fish to the pot and continue to boil.
  5. Finally, when the salt fish and potatoes are both soft, turn off the pot and serve.

For the Tomato Sauce:

            – 2 small onions, sliced

            – 1 garlic clove

            – 3 TBSP butter

            – fresh thyme

            – ¼ C ketchup

            – 1 TBSP tomato paste

            – salt

            – pepper

            – ¾ C water (more if needed)

  1. Heat the pan and add a splash of oil followed by fresh thyme, onion, and garlic.
  2. Once the onions are translucent, put in the butter, tomato paste, ketchup, and water.
  3. Season with salt and prepper.
  4. Let the sauce thicken and serve.
