Trawlermaris Stew

Because of its abundance and succulent thick white fillets, cod has been popular in many countries since medieval times. This recipe is based on a stew that has been popular for centuries in the remote fishing villages of the French Basque. If you have the time, it is worth making your own fresh fish stock for a fuller flavour. Serve in soup bowls with crusty French bread on the side.
