Hi,
Can anyone tell me how to cook the salted cod that is for sale in the shops and markets? Do you have to soak it before you cook it to get the salt out? Undecided

Yes, for several days, changing the water every few hours - if not yuck!
Then you can use it like normal raw fish but it tastes nothing like fresh cod even when de-salted..

Oh for a fish and chip shop...

Is this a frozen foods counter? Tortosa market?
Or, if you buy fresh fish and make your own beer batter, this is
really nice.

If I agree with you, then
we would both be wrong

Try this recipe. It works but DO soak for 24 hours first.

In fact all he bacalao recipes for salted cod are fantastic, just use the basics and adjust to your own liking. You can even curry it, sweet and sour it. But don't cover it in batter like nobby does, so uncouth  Wink

Love cooking with it. Can vary as to how long you need to 'de-salt' it .

If you are feeling brave - raw salt cod salad http://www.foodsnaps.co.uk/2011/03/22/salt-cod-salad-esqueixada/
