1 kg hake

2 dl olive oil

Then add two cloves of crushed garlic, a tablespoon of chopped parsley and another not very full one of paprika. Cut the potatoes into not very large slices of about 6 mm and mix well, sprinkling the tablespoon of flour over everything. When the potatoes are fried, just enough eater is added to cover them. Then the right amount of salt is added as well as six peppercorns and a clove, both ground, and bay leaf, thyme and parsley. Cook the stew for a quarter of an hour and when the potatoes are done, put them into a clay dish. The slightly salted hake slices are arranged on top of the potatoes.
