Soak the bacalao overnight. Drain. Boil the fish, then flake, discarding bones. Sprinkle flour over the flaked fish, then fry in olive oil. Fry the potatoes to golden brown. Set aside.Saute garlic, onions, and tomatoes in olive oil. Add a little water and simmer for two minutes. Pour in the tomato sauce and one cup water, and bring to a boil. Add the fish, garbanzos, and pepper strips, stirring. Then put in the fried potatoes. Add more olive oil and salt, if necessary.
Do not store potatoes in the refrigerator. Refrigeration converts the starch in potatoes to sugar which will cause the potato to darken when cooked.
