For the cod confit:

For the bruschetta:
1.    Drizzle some olive oil over the toasted bread, and season with salt and pepper. 
2.    Shred the cod and place it on top of the toasted bread. Add some lemon mayonnaise to each bruschetta and some capers, no more than four or five to each toast. 
3.    After that, cut in half the turnips and the cherry tomatoes. Place them on every bruschetta in an aesthetically pleasing way.

Finally, top with some mustard cress and drizzle again with some olive oil. 

There are several other citrus mayonnaise options you can try, for example, an orange mayonnaise, made with orange juice and zest, this mayonnaise has a bright and fruity flavor that can go well with this cod bruschetta.
