Fried Salt Cod & Garlic Dip

Fried Salt Cod & Garlic Dip
The Fried Cod is accompanied by the Garlic Dip & we enjoy their taste in a lovely combination. The slurry/batter made with dry yeast makes cod even more tasty and crisp and the garlic from bland mashed potatoes can be transformed into a fluffy dip, like mousse, tasty and tangy flavor.
For all who love this dish, I wish you enjoyment!
