    1. Rinse the cod fish under cold running water to remove surface salt. Place the pieces of cod in a large plastic dish or bowl, cover with water and refrigerate it for 24 hours, change the water several times.
    2. Drain the water, remove the bones and skin from the cod, cut it into thick strips and place it in a bowl. Season the cod with lemon juice, chopped garlic, ground pepper and the milk. Let it marinade for about an hour.
    3. Remove the cod from the marinade, drain it, dip it into flour and deep-fry the cod pieces in hot oil,  then drain the fish on absorbent paper to remove excess fat and set aside.
    4. Meanwhile, boil the vegetables in a pan with water and salt to taste.
    5. Place the vegetables in the center of a platter, surround with the fried cod, and drizzle it with melted butter and lemon juice.
