Salt Cod is a staple food in many countries. The process of salting cod to preserve it dates back over 500 years. The highly salted fish must be soaked for a few days before it can be used. Salt cod can be used in casseroles or sometimes it is fried. Each culinary region has it's own traditional uses. For example, in Spain, chunks of cod are pan fried in olive oil and garlic then topped with a vegetable ragu or served with potatoes. In some countries the fish is fried and eaten for breakfast.
Salt cod can be found in meat and fish markets. You can also purchase salt cod online at Amazon.
