  • 4 tb Currants
  • 4 tb Pine nuts
  • 2 lb Salt cod fillets; soaked for two days cut into 1" by 2" rectangles

Cod, must soak 2 days in water changed daily
Soak currants and pine nuts in 2 cups lukewarm water for one hour and then drain. Drain salted cod and then pat dry. Heat oil in a 12-inch saute pan until smoking. Add cod pieces and cook until golden brown on 1 side. Turn cod pieces over and then add onion, garlic, pine nuts, and currants to the pan, shaking it so that all the ingredients are in contact with the pan. Cook until cod is golden brown, about 6 to 7 more minutes. Remove cod to warm plate, add spinach, and season with salt and pepper. Place cod on top of spinach, add wine, cover, and cook for 8 more minutes, until the liquid evaporates from the spinach. Serve immediately. Yield: 4 servings
