These choice boneless cuts represent the best cod offered by the La Bacaladera Company. Use this firm and flaky fish to create the legendary Basque dish, "bacalao al pil pil" and many other classic Spanish recipes.
Our bacalao is semi salted, full pieces of premium cod. Unlike many types of bacalao, it is not fully dried. This makes for a more tender, meatier tenderloin. The skin is retained, key for several traditional Spanish recipes.
Caught in the traditional manner, hand-cleaned and frozen on the fishing boat, the bacalao is brought back to Irun, Spain, where it is meticulously thawed and screened for the highest quality pieces. It is then cut by hand, salted and air-dried to age under daily observation by La Bacaladera’s "maestro." This delicate process produces premium-quality fish replicating the tradition and flavor enjoyed by Spanish men and women for centuries.
To reconstitute the fish:
Place the fillets in the refrigerator for 24 hours in a bath of cold water. Submerge with the skin side facing up and change the water every 6-8 hours. Following their bath, the fish should be approximately 3cm thick and have a cumulative weight of 1 pound.

"You will seldom find such a good cut of bacalao here in the United States, especially if you are making bacalao al pil-pil this has the skin in tact!. This is just like the bacalao I remember back in Spain where I spent my childhood. "

"As a professional chef, I have many sources for salt cod, this is the real deal with plump, white cod ideally for making bacola!"

"The cod was delicious for Bacalao a la Viscaina. I gave 5 stars for taste, but the size was smaller than expected. "
Lilia - Dec 27, 2010
"The bacalao was not even close to the picture. The portion is really smal, will serve one. Quality is OK, not great. Shipping was very fast, La Tienda Refunded the Money. No questions asked. I would buy another product from them. They are serious about customer service."
