Kokotxas is a traditional Basque fish stew. The dish is made from stewed fish necks / dewlap (normally from a fatty fish like cod or hake) served with a sauce made from white wine, garlic, flour and olive oil.[1] In the Basque Country the dish is served with a green sauce (salsa verde / saltsa berde) made from olive oil, flour, garlic and parsley.[2]
