We’re in the full swing of the holidays! Thanksgiving dinner is under our belt and Noche Buena and Christmas morning is in our sights. The tree is up, the lights are twinkling, the garland is strewn, and we’re headed back into the kitchen to cook up dish after dish of delicious classics. To keep us inspired, we’re putting a TLK twist on the classic song 12 Days of Christmas. You know the one with 12 drummers drumming, 11 pipers piping...all the way down to the partridge in the pear tree!
We’ve already covered 12 Tasty Tacos, shared our 11 Favorite Flans, made 10 Types of Tamales, toasted with 9 Christmas Cocktails, dug into 8 Enchiladas, indulged with 7 Pasteles Dulces, cooked up 6 Pans of Paella, snacked on 5 Cro-Que-Tas, and worked on 4 Perfect Pernils, the star of our holiday meal. Today we're savoring 3 Bacalaos! Make some cocktails, invite over friends, and get ready to cook (and sing!) along!
This savory dish is great for feeding a holiday crowd. The salted cod won't break the bank and can be bought in advance and stored in the pantry along with the rest of the ingredients: olive oil, olives, capers, and onions. Serve it with a big pot of rice or crusty bread and some white wine for a simple holiday feast.
This savory dish would be welcomed at any holiday table. Cod is simmered with a host of spices and ladled onto fluffy white rice for warm and comforting meal. Make a bit pot and let it simmer; it only gets better as the flavors marry. And it lets you enjoy the company instead of standing over a stove.
