I have to confess that it was my first experience with ackee and saltfish and how quickly did I fall in love with this, the national dish of Jamaica. Start by putting the dry salted fish to boil in a pot on high heat, then simmer for about 20 minutes you can also soak in cold water overnight before boiling if you wish. After boiling drain, rinse under cool water and squeeze dry.
Hard to find! Use on meats, fish, poultry, eggs, vegetables, soup and salads. Or use in place of table salt for a healthful and flavorful alternative.
Retained heat will continue to cook the fish without over-cooking and ruining taste and texture. Place chunks into a large bowl and rinse well with fresh water to remove slime and any debris. Drain off water.
Yield: Serves 4. Directions Place tamarind in a medium bowl and cover with hot water. Let soak for 15 minutes; mash tamarind.
Be the first to write a review! On the island of Puerto Rico, cod salad, also known as serenata de bacalao and gazpachois a staple dish, eaten throughout the year, and especially during Lent when fish typically replaces meat on Fridays. The ingredients used to make the salad vary greatly from the region of the island, to the cook; some like to add potatoes, while others capers and eggs.
This is a Sicilian specialty that uses the island's fresh fish and abundant salt. The salt lagoons provided Sicily with one of its most important commodities for thousands of years, and salt harvesting is still a crucial industry. This method of cooking seafood is popular all over southern Italy.
Salt cod. Cod has a fascinating, lucrative history. Much of it has to do with its salted version. Cod was and still is fished primarily in the North Atlantic and before the days of refrigeration, when a cod fishing trip lasted months, the fish was laid down in the hold with layers of salt to preserve it.
In London, I found more easily salt cod from Spanish delis. In Italy, cod stew recipes often call for Norwegian stockfish from Lofoten islandsapparently the highest quality available on the market. You might have to order it in advance from your local fishmonger or try ordering online.
