2 cups salted pork fat (scrunchions), chopped

2 onions, chopped 

1 cup salt beef, chopped

3 potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 cod fillets

Fresh herbs such as chives, finely chopped, for garnish


  1. Cook the salted pork fat in a large pot over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the fat is rendered and they are a nice golden brown, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the onions and cook until soft. Add the salt beef, cook for 3 minutes, and add the potatoes. Cover with 4 cups water and add salt and pepper to taste. Bring the soup to a boil and add the cod. Simmer until the cod turns from transparent to solid white, about 20 minutes.
  3. Spoon the soup into bowls and garnish with the herbs.
