Chorizo, salt cod and broad bean salad


Double-peeling broad beans is a matter of personal taste. If you like, peel only the largest ones and leave the skins on the smaller ones to add texture to the dish. You'll need to begin this recipe a day ahead.

You'll need

800 gm salt cod, soaked overnight in three changes of cold water 250 ml dry white wine 4 thyme sprigs 2 fresh bay leaves 60 ml (¼ cup) olive oil ½ Spanish onion, thinly sliced 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 2 dried chorizo, thinly sliced diagonally 25 ml sherry vinegar 300 gm podded broad beans (about 500gm unpodded) 1½ cups coarsely torn flat-leaf parsley 1 cup coarsely torn mint

Method

  • 01
  • Drain salt cod, rinse under cold running water and combine with wine and herbs in a large saucepan, cover generously with cold water and bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until cod is just tender (15-20 minutes), drain (discard herbs) and, when cool enough to handle, coarsely flake salt cod (discard skin and bones), transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add onion and garlic, sauté until beginning to soften (2-3 minutes), add chorizo and sauté until golden and crisp (2-3 minutes). Remove from pan with a slotted spoon and add to salt cod. Add sherry vinegar to pan, swirl to combine, season to taste and set aside.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, blanch broad beans until just tender (1-2 minutes), then refresh, peel and add to chorizo mixture. Add herbs, drizzle with sherry vinegar mixture, toss to combine and serve.
