Directions

In saucepan, layer the potatoes on the bottom. Then codfish, garlic then thyme. Season with salt then put enough milk in just to cover fish. Bring to a slow simmer covered with parchment paper. Simmer until fish is flaky and potatoes are tender. Remove the thyme bundle, drain the milk and process until smooth, in the bowl of food processor, using enough olive oil to smooth consistency. Season with salt and hot sauce, to taste, and stir in scallions. Serve with plantain chips.
To a blender, add peppers and 1 cup of vinegar and puree. Add rest of vinegar if needed. Stir in pimento seeds. Store in a bottle or jar in refrigerator.
