RECIPE MADE WITH LOVE BY

“I just LOVE salt cod! This recipe is a simple but tasty dish that originates in Spain, but there are similar recipes in many hispanic countries. Don't be put off by the salt cod - it looks and smells strange at first, but the finished recipes are delicious! Time does not include 8-12 hours soaking time. NOTE: Bacalao can be found at most italian grocers. There is plastic bagged bacalao, but the best comes in a wooden crate and is sold by the piece. It gets quite pricy, but is worth the extra cost. :--)”
