  • After cooking fish prepare Prune Sauce.
  • Fry onion in a small amount of hot oil, add plums and apricots, raisins, vinegar and spices.
  • Cover and simmer over low heat until onions are translucent and soft.
  • Add tomato puree, simmer for about 5 minutes, then add honey, stir and simmer for additional 2 minutes to dissolve honey well. Cool sauce.
  • Split cod cooked fillets into small pieces.
  • Pour half of prune sauce on a shallow bowl and spread evenly. Top with fish and pour again prune sauce. Sprinkle with walnuts.
