If using frozen cod filet, move it from freezer to the fridge 24h in advance.
In a saucepan, bring the salted water to a boil. You need just enough water to cover the fish, no more. When the water starts boiling, put the cod filet in it and bring it to a boil. When the water comes to a boil again, take it off the heat, put the lid on and let it stand for 10 minutes. During this time, the fish will be gently poaching and become ready but not dry.


While fish is cooking, thinly slice the garlic. Cut the olives in half, if using caper berries, cut them also in half.
In a bowl, mix the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and 1-2 tbsp of the fish broth. Mix the dressing well.


Take the cooked fish out of the water with the skimmer or perforated spoon and place it on a large flat plate in a single layer. Then, pour the dressing over it and season with salt and black pepper to taste. Next, place olives and capers on top and garnish with basil leaves.
Serve it right away.
You can also keep leftovers of the dish in the fridge and enjoy next day cold or hot.
Bon Appetit!
