    1. Boil the poatoes.
    2. Cut the onions in half moons and place it in a pan with plenty of olive oil (should at least cover the onion), add a little vinegar, salt and bay leaf, cook well and set aside.
    3. Pass the cod on wheat flour and fry, drain well and reserve as well.
    4. Make the mashed potatoes.
    5. On a platter arrange a good layer of onion, place the cod loins in the center and the mashed potatoes puree on the sides.
    6. Over the cod add a little more onion, chop the small pickles and place them on top of the cod/onion, finish by spreading a little mayonnaise over the pickles and bake until it starts to get golden brown.
