“Baccalla is dried and salted cod. I like a good baccalla salad, but I do not enjoy preparing the salted cod which requires soaking and changing the water for three days. In this recipe, I substitute fresh cod. Poaching gives it a nice texture for the salad. Though, not quite as toothy as the dried fish. The salad may be eaten immediately after preparation, but gets better if allowed to marinate for a couple of hours.”
