Directions
  1. Wash the potatoes and cook in a pan with water and the broth until tender, drain and set aside the cooking water.
  2. Pass the potatoes through cold water, drain again and put aside.
  3. Put the capers, parsley, mustard, sugar, vinegar and oil in a pot and stir for 1 minute, check for salt, capers already have salt.
  4. Pour this sauce over the potatoes, sprinkle  with the chives and put aside.
  5. In a skillet with a little olive oil, saute the onions and set aside.
  6. Dry the cod with a paper towel.
  7. In the same frying pan from the onions, heat a little olive oil and place the cod with the skin side down for 3 minutes, it will leave the skin crispy, turn and cook for another 2 minutes.
  8. Place the onions over the cod, garnish with the olives and serve with the poatoes.
