Bacalao / salted & dried Cod
Bacalao is the Spanish term for dried and salted codfish. This old-world method of drying codfish has been around for over 500 years and was a main staple of protein for many countries around Europe. Each country has their own name for it but the word mainly comes from the root bacal.
Salted cod is healthy with lots of omega-3 fatty acids, it’s high in protein and low in fat, and it’s relatively inexpensive. The best thing is that it’s super simple to make and so versatile.
