Directions/Steps

This recipe was created many years ago` by Sor Francesco, owner of the Osteria in Pratica di Mare (Rome). Read the Full Story.

  • Soak the baccala` for 12 hours in fresh water to remove the salt. Change the water 2-3 times.
  • Soften the raisins by bathing them in lukewarm water.
  • Lightly coat with flour the baccala` fillets.
  • Put some oil in a large saute` pan and give a quick coating  on all sides of the fillets.
  • In a separate saute` pan, saute` the onion.
  • Add the sauted onion to the baccala`.
  • Toast very lightly the pine nuts and the fennel seeds. The toasting is necessary to extract their oils and enhance their flavors.
  • Add to the baccala` the tomatoes, the pine nuts, the fennel seeds, the raisins and the peperoncino.
  • Continue cooking the baccala` and if it gets a bit dry, add some hot water. At the end the sauce should be dense. Pay special attention in turnig the fillets as they become fragile and can break up.
  • Add salt as needed, but be careful that the baccala` could still have some residual salt of its own.
  • Sprinkle fresh pepper and the baccala` is ready to be served.

Buon Appetito!

Personally, I do not like the saltiness and sweetness combination of baccala and raisins. Added to that a hot peperoncino - hot, salt and sweet.
