The following recipes are just a sample of our dishes.

Cod stuffed with Spinach.

Receta del Restaurante Magnolia, Puerto de la Cruz, TenerifeFor 2 people:
400g cod, 150g cooked well drained spinach, 30g ground almonds, 15g  fresh minced garlic, 3 soup spoons of mayonnaise, 2 aluminum custard cups, transparent kitchen paper.

Cover the custard cups with the kitchen paper, leaving enough paper to cover the cups when filled.

Cut the cod into small slices aprox. 4mm. These slices should fill the interior of the cups leaving space for the spinach you have previously prepared, to fill the centre. Cover the top of the spinach with cod.

Once you have the cups completely filled, cover them with the excess kitchen paper and then with aluminum paper. Prepare a Bain Marie in a large pot with a cover and place the cups inside. As soon as the water is boiling, reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 18 minutes.  While it is cooking prepare the sauce.

Mix the ground almonds with the mayonnaise and garlic, ready to spoon over the cod.  Remove the Bain Marie from the heat and drain the water out.  Remove the aluminum and  paper from the lid of the cup, place a plate on top of cup and holding the cup and plate together, flip it over and remove the cup, aluminum and kitchen paper from the cod.

Spoon the sauce over the cod and grill until it gets a golden colour. Serve with boiled potatoes.
