This dish is usually served with papas arrugadas or boiled peeled potatoes and is tastier if prepared the day before.
1 kg fish
½ small Canarian loaf (hard)
1 head garlic
1 hot red pepper
1 teaspoon pimentón
vinegar (or white wine)
Clean and slice the fish, salt and fry. Arrange fried pieces of fish in a saucepan.
Fry the garlic and croutons in the same oil as the fish. Sprinkle the fried bread with a little vinegar.
Pound the garlic in a mortar with a little salt and a small portion of the hot red pepper, the latter having previously been soaked in hot water. Mix with the fried bread and add to the frying-pan with the oil used for frying the fish, together with the water, pimentón, thyme, bay leaf and oregano. Simmer briefly, pour over the fried fish and boil for a few minutes.
