Don't get me wrong, the recipes turned out great but I just wanted something different tonight.
And, nope, I didn't forget the salted cod soaking in the fridge.
Enter tonight's dinner:
|The pizza dough after rising for one hour.|
In a fry pan, I put some garlic and onion with olive oil on medium heat.
Then I added in some canned chopped tomatoes with a bay leaf and some black pepper.
After that hung out for a bit I pulled out a piece of the cod from the fridge, shook off the excess water, tore it into chunks and added into the pan.
I let it simmer until the tomatoes released most of their liquid and the sauce started to get a bit dry. Remember to pull out the bay leaf before you use it to fill the dough.
Then I rolled out the dough and spooned in the Bacalao.
Then I used a fork to seal up the edges.
Then I whisked one egg.
I brushed the egg wash over all.
One of the empanadas was prettier than the other...
They went into a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.
How did the empanadas turn out?
Incredibly delicious!! But I love cod - you could put cod in anything and I would be happy.
But this dish turned out savory and just a bit spicy (yeah, I was very generous with the black pepper) and the dough was mouthwatering.
I give this dish 5 thumbs up.
But what am I going to do with these?
