I am about to make this wonderful looking dish. However it does say to preheat the oven to 350 Fahrenheit. But it doesn't say how long to cook in the oven? Also, it says "milk to taste" when cooking the Cod. How much milk, as I see you add about 5 tbs to onion mixture!

With the milk, add enough milk to the pan to cover the cod, once the cod is cooked, you will only need 5 tablespoons of the milk used to cook the cod. As far as baking time, 30 minutes (step 10).

Can you suggest how many potatoes and size, for the mashed potatoes? Also, what size baking dish do you suggest? I too am Irish and love cooking your recipes!!!

Hi Koko, about 8 large potatos (for 4 people) and you can use a 2-quart casserole dish (size 11”x7”x1.5”) or a little deeper, it should be enough.
