  • Rinse the cod under running water; drain. Remove skin and bones.

  • Transfer cod to a saucepan and cover with water. Heat over low heat until it is soft and flakes easily with a fork, about 30 minutes. Drain cod and let cool until easily handled, about 15 minutes. Shred finely and transfer to a large saucepan.

  • Place saucepan over low heat. Pour in olive oil in a slow, steady stream, beating vigorously, until mixture thickens to the consistency of mayonnaise, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, parsley, salt, and white pepper. Let cool before serving, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use a hand beater in step 4 if you like.
