Do you think you can't simultaneously eat healthy and indulge in rich, flavorful fish? Think again! At Wholey's, we love that we can share everything we love about food, including how healthy and straightforward it is to make a positive change in your diet without skimping on flavor when you cook with our Baccalà Salt Cod.
You may not have heard of Baccalà Salt Cod or might be wondering the difference between Baccalà and Cod. Baccalà is traditional Italian salted cod and is an exquisite fish enjoyed in many recipes—from appetizers to the star of the show entrée. In Italy, Baccalà is a celebrated fish and a fish for celebrations, often enjoyed during the weeks that lead up to Easter, known as Lent, and it's eaten on Fridays instead of meat. In Central and Southern Italy, Baccalà Salt Cod also features heavily on Christmas Eve dinners, and even find it as a battered and fried appetizer.
But you don't have to wait for Lent this year to enjoy a world full of flavor with our Baccalà Salt Cod. Why not try cooking something new that will amaze and delight your, your family's, or guests' taste buds? Try cooking a Veneto, Italy delicacy called Baccalà alla Vicentia or Baccalà Mantecato, Baccalà alla Livornese, or a Baccalà Fritta.
Cod is a mild fish and a great source of b12, iodine, selenium, and phosphorus. Baccalà Salt Cod must be prepped before use, and we recommend two to three days of soaking before cooking as this controls how salty the fish is. Soak Baccalà Salted cod longer for a milder, less salty taste or shorter for a saltier but bolder flavor. Make sure to change the water in which you soak our Baccalà Salted Cod at least once daily.
