The Bacalao al pil pil is codfish to the pil-pil sauce, a typical Spanish dish of the gastronomy of the Basque Country, prepared with four ingredients: codfish, olive oil, garlic and chilli. The name “pil-pil” comes from the sound produced during the cooking of the cod, the explosion of albumin bubbles released by the fish.
