The Vault Flaked Cod with Spaghettini

6 thin (1/8-inch) slices Italian bread (not sourdough)

2/3 c. extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 lb. cod or haddock, 1/2 inch thick, boneless and skinless


1 lb. spaghettini, trenette or linguine (Latini or Rustichella d'Abruzzo brands preferred)

4 T. garlic, finely chopped

1 t. crushed red pepper flakes

1 1/2 c. white wine

1/4 c. Italian parsley, roughly chopped

Drizzle a little olive oil on the bread and toast in a 300-degree oven until golden and crisp. Chop into coarse crumbs with a knife or pulse in a food processor. Set aside.

Put a large pot of salted water on to boil. Cut the fish into thirds. Season on both sides with salt.

When the water reaches a boil, drop in the pasta. Pour half the olive oil into a large saute pan and heat over medium-high. When the oil is hot, add the chopped garlic. Immediately shake the pan so the garlic cooks evenly to a light golden brown (30-45 seconds). Add the red pepper flakes and stir. Remove from the heat and add the white wine. Return to the stove and bring to a simmer. Add the fish. Simmer for 2 minutes; turn and simmer for an additional 1 1/2 minutes. Turn the heat off.

When the pasta is about 1 minute away from al dente, drain it and add to the fish pan. Add the parsley and remaining olive oil. Return the pan to high heat, stirring and tossing constantly until the fish is flaked and the pasta coated with sauce, about 30 seconds. Taste for salt, divide among four plates, sprinkle with bread crumbs and serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.
