February recipe: Majorcan sea cucumbers with cod

Majorcan ciurons with cod

Ingredients for 4 people.


  • 250 g of dry Majorcan ciurons
  • 250 g of salted cod
  • 400 g of spinach
  • 1 leek
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 bunch tomatoes
  • 3 garlics
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon of black peppercorns
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • good pepper

Soak the watercress for 12 hours, well covered with water and a pinch of salt. We will also cover the salted and crumbled cod with water for 8 hours, changing the water twice.

To boil the watercress, heat water in a pot with garlic, a bay leaf, leek and carrot, previously peeled, cleaned and cut into three pieces. When the water boils, add the watercress and cook for 1 hour and a half.

While the cirons are cooking:

  • Cut into very small cubes (a brunoisse) the onion.
  • Peel and dice the tomatoes.
  • Peel two garlics and roll them.
  • We wash the spinach, spin it and cut it into thick pieces.
  • Remove the excess water from the cod.

In a frying pan or a pan with oil, add the rolled garlic. When they begin to brown, add the onion, tomato, salt and pepper, and simmer everything over low heat. When the stir-fry is well done, add a teaspoon of black pepper and the cod. We stir it and let it cook for 3 minutes with a little broth from the watercress. Add the spinach, a little salt and pepper and stir everything.

Finally, add the watercress to the stir-fry, with part of the broth, just so that they remain moist. Mix everything and serve.
