Saltfish is dried salted fish of the cod family. It is an ancient food, as Spanish fishing boats visited what are now Canadian waters as long as 500 years ago.

Saltfish evolved as a way of preserving fish before the days of refrigerators, and was used in the West Indies, northern Europe and Mediterranean Europe. It’s got lots of different names, in Spanish bacalao, in Portuguese bacalhau, in French morue, in English saltfish.

Don’t boil saltfish to remove the salt, soak it for 12 hours instead with a few changes of water, then cook it as fresh cod. It makes traditional ackee and saltfish and wonderful soft fish fritters.
