We begin to prepare this recipe for cod gratin with potatoes and béchamel sauce by putting a saucepan on the fire with plenty of water. When it starts to boil add the cod, cover and leave on the fire for five minutes.
We drain the hot water carefully and after a couple of minutes we remove the skin and the thorns, and we flake the cod.
Trick: If we let the fish cool down a lot it will be very difficult to remove the skin afterwards.
Next, we peel the potatoes and cut them into slices or cubes. So we have 2 options: we can boil or fry them, as you prefer. Then reserve them on a separate plate.
Trick: Obviously, if you cook the potatoes in water you will not add as many calories to the baked cod gratin with bechamel.
Next we peel the onion, the we cut into juliana (thin strips) and put a pan on the fire with a splash of olive oil. When it is hot add the onion and fry until it is soft and transparent. We reserve.
The next step is to prepare the bechamel with cream from the cod crumbs with potatoes and bechamel. For this we put the butter in a frying pan on the fire and when it is hot we add the flour to remove the raw flavor. We stir so that it does not burn.
In the meantime We heat the milk in the microwave and then add the cream and mix well. We are adding it to the pan where we have the flour at the same time that we stir so that no lumps form. We keep on the fire stirring frequently until the bechamel sauce thickens. We withdraw and reserve. We add salt to our liking.
In the pan where we have the poached onion add the cod flakes and mix well. We pour this mixture in a dish suitable for the oven, cover with the fried potatoes and pour the cream béchamel over the top. Finally, sprinkle with grated cheese on top.
We put the cod with bechamel in the oven preheated to 180 ºC and bake for about 20 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
We take the baked cod with béchamel sauce and potatoes and we can now enjoy this delicious dish. If we have leftover bechamel we can always prepare another recipe such as these aubergines stuffed with tuna and bechamel.
