Salt Cod, also known as Baccala or Bacalhau, is Cod fillet that has been preserved with a process of salting and drying. The result is a fish with a firmer texture than fresh Cod and a mild, sweet flavor with large flakes. Before cooking,the fillets need to be soaked in water for 2 or 3 days to remove the salt and re-hydrate.  Salt Cod is extremely versatile in the kitchen, and can be prepared in various ways such as grilling, baking, pan-frying, or used in chowder or stew.

How to Prepare

To re-hydrate the Salt Cod, cover completely in water in the fridge for two or three days, frequently replacing the water.  An easy recipe for salt cod is to make the Spanish classic Buñuelos de Bacalao, or Salt Cod Fritters.  Flake the re-hydrated Salt Cod, and mix with mashed potatoes and fresh herbs, then roll into balls or flatten and fry in olive oil until crispy.
