Fried Baccala`


For the Baccala`:

  • 1 pound dried Baccala`
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 0.5 cup grated Parmigiano cheese
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 cup water
  • salt
  • frying oil


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.

In a bowl, prepare the pastella (batter) by mixing: flour, eggs, a pinch of salt, garlic, parsley, cheese and water.

Dip the pieces of baccala` in the pastella and fry in hot oil.

Fry both sides of each piece of baccala` until they turn golden.

Serve immediately.
