It is another way to eat cannelloni. When we think about cannelloni we usually associate them with meat or leftover food from a pot. It can also come from different kinds of fish. In this case, the cod stuffing and a piquillo pepper sauce combine very well.

The esqueixada is a typical salad of the Catalan gastronomy. It is a cold salad made with the following ingredients: crumbs of cod, chopped italian green pepper and chopped red pepper, onion, olives and tomato (grated or chopped). They are flavored with olive oil, vinegar, and salt in case it is necessary. After being desalted, the cod is crumbled with hands. That is why this salad gained this name, considering that in catalan the word esqueixar means “to crumble” or “to shred”.
