Armenian Creamed Cod Fish Recipe

Serves/Makes: 6


  • 2 pounds cod fish
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 3 medium potatoes, halved
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream or creme fraiche
  • Fried bread slices
  • Water
How to cook Armenian Creamed Cod Fish:
  • Place the fish in a pan with water to cover. Add the lemon slices and bring to boil over high heat.
  • When the surface becomes foamy, cover and reduce heat. Simmer for about 15 minutes. Drain and reserve the liquid. Set aside the fish and keep warm.
  • In the same liquid, cook the three potatoes for 30 - 40minutes, or until done. Drain and peel. Mash with a fork or in a blender. Set aside.
  • Skin the fish and remove the bones. Heat half cup of the oil.
  • Place the fish in a pyrex dish (to prevent discoloring) and mash the fish with a wooden spoon in the oil.
  • Stir in the potatoes, beating until well blended and a smooth paste is formed. A few drops of cold water may be added to prevent curdling.
  • Heat the remaining oil and add to the mixture and continue beating until a very smooth paste is formed. Season with the salt, pepper, lemon juice, garlic. Stir in the heavy cream or creme fraiche.
  • Transfer the mixture to the top of a double boiler and place over hot water. Stir until hot.
  • Pour into a serving dish, mounding it like a dome, and surround it with the fried bread, cut into half-moon shapes.
