This is one Greek festive dish.

1 kilo salt cod (soaked in water, and water changed 4-5 times until salt is gone) or
1 kilo cod fillets
Flour the fish and leave it aside while you prepare the batter:
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup water
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 teaspoon red sweet paprika
1/3 teaspoon salt
Just stir everything together until you get a batter similar to the one you prepare for pancakes. Leave it to rest for 15 minutes.
Heat oil in a heavy bottom skillet. Dip the fish in the batter, and fry. Leave in a plate covered with paper towels.
Serve with:
Potato-garlic dip
4 big potatoes (older and starchy if possible)
1 clove of garlic
1/3 cup water (where potatoes were cooked)
1/3 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
Wash the potatoes. Peel of their skin, cut them on small cubes and cook them in 1 cup of water. Keep half cup of this water and when potatoes are cold put everything except the oil in a blender and pulse. Slowly add the oil and serve.
