A dish traditional in the Languedoc and Provence areas of France - especially the city of Nimes. It is composed of pounded salt cod (which has been previously soaked in water), garlic and olive oil; on completion, the whole resembling mashed potatoes. Indeed the dish is often diluted with mashed potato (but this happens more often outside its traditional area). The finished dish is often served with a fried egg on top.
