    I've been meaning to make this for a while. Since I saw @x39 post it in the dinner thread. He was nice enough to share his recipe when I asked.
    I adapted it to a fish stew of sorts, eventually combining all the ingredients into one pan and finishing it by simmering rather than in an oven. But it took several pots to get there and I was glad for the Trangia-27 cook set. And the addition of a cake pan that I added, which gave me a higher walled cooking pan for all these ingredients.

    So lets get started.

    Amazing how much stuff you can almost fit in the Finnish gas mask bag. But I'm glad I didn't have to carry it far ;)

    It only took 10 minutes to get this to a boil while I kept prepping.

    Getting the cod ready and putting it in the other pot that came with the cook set.

    And the cod is put on to boil while I used the pan with the onions and butter as a lid. This got the butter melted so it wasn't starting from scratch when it was time to be put on the heat.

    And if you were wondering... the answer is yes. There was adult beverage :D

    It didn't take long for the fish to boil... and boil over.

    I tried using the simmer apparatus I made to damper the flame

    But the flames figured it out rather quickly and went right around it, as you can see here when I started sauteing the onions.

    The fish were transferred over with the potatoes and carrots, reserving the water for the sauce.

    From there flour was added to make a roux, then some of the fish water added, then some cream. The sauce was stirred and the veggies added back in. Aside from the salt that was used when boiling things, I added some pepper and some Old Bay.

    And plated.

    And re-plated when that was gone. Nothing was left :36:
    Awesome recipe @x39 :dblthumb:

    All in all it took an hour to make and basically two Trangia burners full. I also had another burner, a Mil-Tec clone, in use for about five minutes, but it did not bloom well at all so I changed it out for the Trangia. First time using the Mil-Tec. I probably could have used it when I needed to simmer. So just a little more than two full burners' worth of Heet fuel.

    Thanks for looking :)

    Very nicely done! I do love me some cod and that looks amazing.

    One thing I would do a little different is start the roux by frying two or three pieces of bacon, once done remove the bacon and set aside. Use the bacon grease to saute onion and flour. You can crumble the bacon and add it at the end.

    Thanks!! :)
    It sure beats cooking on the stove. Even if it's just the back porch.
