Directions/Steps
  • Before you can cook dried Baccala` you need to remove the saltiness from it. The process to remove the saltiness is to put it in fresh cold water for 12-24 hours, depending on its thickness. Change the water several times during the process.
  • Boil a pot of water and once the water boils drop the Baccala` in it.
  • Let it boil for about 5 minutes. A bit longer if the pieces are thick.
  • Remove the Baccala` from the pan and rinse it under cold water.
  • With your hands break the Baccala in lumps and put in a bowl.
  • Add the olives, chopped celery, the fennel sliced thin and the parslyey. Mix well.
  • Add the red onion sliced very fine and the chopped garlic.
  • Add salt & pepper s desired.
  • Add 1/2 cup of EV olive oil and the juice of 1 large lemon.
  • Toss well, cover  and refrigerate for 2 hours.

This recipe sounds and looks good. I guess that mine is much simpler. I just do the Baccala and just add black olives, cut up hot cherry peppers and lemon juice. Have been making it this way for well over 40 years. It was taught to me by my Italian mother in law.
