Salt-preserved Cod is leather-hard before washing and should have a nice salty, meaty flavor.
To prepare for cooking, freshen the fish as follows- Wash fish for 15 minutes in running water. Place fish in pan and cover with water. Heat slowly (Do not boil) and pour off water. Repeat this last process until fish is no longer too salty to taste. Even after soaking, there is a notable saltiness, so it takes well to fritters, brandades, croquettes where the seasoning is mellowed by the fat.
