Salt Cod Tapas
Salt cod or "Bacalao" is usually soaked in water from several hours to days in some cases depending on the recipe ie bacalao fritters. Unsoaked the fish or the cod loin can be very salty but does make up a flavoursome bite sized tapa if paired with something juicy....
Here we have slivers of bacalao served with some very sweet and juicy ripe vine tomatoes.
The two go well together as the tomato compliments the cod, the key is to slice the loin as thinly as possible, a sprinkle of pepper and away you go!
Tip: If you enjoy anchovies you will like this strong flavoured tapa.
