In the Caribbean, salt fish, also called bacalao, bacalhau, baccalà or dried fish, is fresh, meaty white fish like Pollock that has been preserved for longer storage by salt-curing and drying until all the moisture has been extracted. By salting it, the fish retains its nutrients and becomes more flavorful.
Bacalao isn't like anything you've ever tried. Its flavor isn't salty as you would expect, but in fact mild, yet still fishy, with a hint of sweetness to it. After hydrating it, its texture is plump, and the fillets are firm. Once it is rehydrated, bacalao becomes delicate and tender.
Salted Pollock is commonly found in a variety of tapas recipes such as croquettes. Impress your guest with some “bacalaito Fritters”. It is also excellent as a casserole accompanied with boiled potatoes and white rice.
Thawing: Pierce sealed bag and thaw overnight in bag in refrigerator, or place sealed bag under cold water changing the water every 30 minutes so that it continues to thaw. Keep frozen until ready to use. Once thawed, do not refreeze. Store thawed fish in the refrigerator and use within two days. Although great care has been taken to remove all bones, some may remain.
