Made this as a first course for a Caribbean themed dinner. It's probably necessary to find piment d'Espelette - which I wasn't about to spend days doing, so used organic paprika instead. Otherwise I followed the recipe to the letter. I found after soaking the cod for 24 hours and then boiling in milk, all the saltiness was gone and with none added back for the potatoes the whole thing just tasted bland. The fish just has no taste left. I added a touch of salt back but it was still bland. The saving grace was serving it with a good mango chutney which added some flavour. This recipe is a lot of work - very time consuming and uses a lot of dishes and isn't worth it, IMO. None of the guests gave it compliments.
