1/2 pound salt pork, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
2 medium onions, chopped
3 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 5 cups)
4 cups water
1 cup dry white wine
2 1/2 pounds fresh cod, haddock, or pollock fillets
1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
3 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup minced fresh parsley


Cook salt pork in a Dutch oven over medium heat until crisp; remove salt pork, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings in pan. Set salt pork aside.

Sauté onion in hot drippings over medium-high heat 5 minutes or until tender. Add potatoes, 4 cups water, and wine; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 12 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are almost tender.

Arrange fillets over potatoes; cover and simmer 10 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork. Break fish into chunks. Add evaporated milk and next 3 ingredients; cook over medium heat just until thoroughly heated. Top each serving with reserved salt pork, parsley, and paprika. Serve with breadsticks or crackers.
