The day before, put the salt cod in water to soak, changing the water about 4 times. On the day of preparation, drain and cook the cod in fresh water for 5 minutes. Remove fish from water, remove the bones and shred; set aside.
Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
Heat the oil in a large saucepan and sauté the onion, parsley and garlic. Add the cod and potatoes. Cook for another 10 minutes until the potatoes start to turn a golden colour and season with salt to taste.
Transfer to a large baking dish and bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove and garnish with sliced eggs and olives.
