Well, Deborah (my friend Deborah, not my wife Debbie) shamed me into resuming the blog. It’s not that I haven’t been cooking some (although less than weekly); it’s not that I’ve been blogging less (more on tech topics, another interest of mine (I don’t use the word “passion” where “interest” is the right word; let’s save passion for love). It’s just that… well, she was right. I’ve got to get back on the horse.
Two weeks ago I bought some cod impulsively for a dinner for Debbie, and realized belatedly that we were probably going to do something else that evening. I looked up ways to cook cod, just to do something with it, and most of the recipes were for salt cod.
How hard can it be to salt cod, I said to myself. And found the recipe here: basically salt, cod, and time.
Here’s how it looked after a week of salting. Firm, dried out, definitely bacalla-like. Next job is to try it in something… Stay tuned.
