    luvcook'n's Note:

    The Portuguese, like the Spanish and the Basques, have always had salted cod to fall back on in hard times. The fish was very popular with these groups for two reasons....first it tasted like the old country and second....they could afford little else. The soaking time for the cod (18-24 hours) is not included in the prep time.
