Salted Cod is just what it’s name implies – fresh Cod that’s been salted to preserve it. Although in some ways its a little taste of history, Salt Cod is popular around the world.
For Your Menu
Salt cod must be rehydrated and desalinated by soaking in cold water for a few days. Keep refrigerated and change the water every day. Then you’re ready to work with it
Europeans often mix Salt Cod with potatoes as in a traditional brandade de morue. Jamaicans even enjoy a dish called ackee and salt fish for breakfast!
For Your Waitstaff
If you have the opportunity to offer your guests a salt cod dish, encourage them to try it as it’s probably not something they’ll try at home!
