Unsalted cod/baccala


The red radish sauce: peel and cut the potatoes into thin slices, lightly brown them with sunflower q.b oil then add water until the potatoes appear overcooked. In the meantime, cut the leaves of the red radish and keep only the red part. Whiten them by immersing in boiling water and vinegar. Cool in water with ice. Strain the radish and mash with the previously boiled potatoes. Pass through a colander to obtain a smooth sauce without lumps. Salt as desired. Pine honey air: reduce the pine tree honey to half by cooking. Add 80 grams of water and mix until the honey has completely melted. Add soy lecithin then mix in a way to obtain air. Chinotto orange juice: reduce the chinotto juice to half by heating. The result will be a dense syrup similar to molasses. Put the piece of cod into sous vide with 20 grams of sunflower oil.
