Years ago, when I was backpacking through Europe, I met up with an Irish girl who was living in Spain and working as a Nanny.  We spent a week together exploring the Wonders of Andalusia and parted as life long friends.  Several years later, I had the opportunity to visit her at her family home in County Calway, Ireland.  Visiting this place, a stark contrast to the moorish beauty of Southern Spain, I was enchanted by the natural splendor of the wild Irish coast, where you would find deer grazing upon the cliffs as if they were in rolling pastures rather than on a dangerous precipice.  Having made the most of her time in Spain, Joanna learned to cook and returned to Ireland to earn a living concocting dishes which combined traditional Irish ingredients with those that actually make a meal edible.  Our Dill Salt is one of her creations. 

 Recipes for our Dill Salt.

  • 2 tsp DILL SALT
  • ¼ cup milk      
  • ½ cup onions
  • ½  cup diced tomatoes   
  • ½  cup grated carrots
  • 4 cups water crackers    
  • 2 tbsp melted butter

Rub cod with DILL SALT & place in a greased casserole dish.  Add remaining ingredients, topping off with crushed crackers.  Cook at 350ºF oven for 25 min.  Check fish with a fork, if it seems flaky, it is done.
