Dried salt codfish is a traditional ingredient not only in Northern European cuisine, but also in Mediterranean, West African, Caribbean, and Brazilian cuisines. The ingredient and the dishes made from it are known by many names, for example baccalà, bacalhau, bacalao, bacallà, morue, klippfisk/clipfish, and saltfiskur. Serve these tasty morsels with tomato sauce. Small balls make a very nice appetizer, too.
