Start by chopping the onions in julienne. In a frying pan put olive oil enough to poach the onion to simmer, without that it burns.
In another frying pan, after washing and cutting the ripe tomatoes, fry them, over low heat, covered with oil and salt.
Once fried the tomatoes are passed by the sieve and, you have the prepared tomato sauce. Cooking the sauce takes at least 15 minutes to simmer.
Now you put flour in a flat dish and floss the cod loins to fry them.
Attention, to flour is to pass them by flour and to remove the leftovers, this is not a batter, ok?
You fry them first by the skin part and then turn them around.
It’s as if you marked them, you do not have to do them much, just brown them.
Now mix the tomato sauce with the onion and it is time to add 2 tablespoons of brown sugar dessert, stir well and leave on the fire 5 minutes to be confit and join the flavors.
Now you pour the cod and serve, the tomato sauce with the onion, above.
You let it cool to rest, before you eat it. This is fundamental, the flavors will be more defined if you let them spend a few minutes before eating it.
Moreover, if you cook it today and leave it to eat it tomorrow, you will see that it is much richer, from one day to another!
