At Iberostar, we are committed to driving a sustainable consumption of seafood to help the oceans recover, while honoring local gastronomic tradition and culinary excellence. We invite you to join our movement with this recipe made using cod with MSC chain-of-custody certification that you can try at home. A classic cod recipe with Dominican flavors, inspired by a dish from the menu of our Le Tourbillon Gourmet Restaurant at the Iberostar Grand Bávaro hotel, located in the Iberostar Bávaro resort.

  • 70 grams of MSC cod (0.15 pounds)
  • Extra virgin olive oil 
  • 1 avocado 
  • 1 lemon

  • Blend the avocado with the lemon juice, add salt and pepper. Taste for flavor and set aside.
  • For the corn cream, sauté the garlic and onion in the butter, add the corn, sauté, add the broth and cream, cook and add salt and pepper. Blend, strain, cool and reserve.
