Salt Cod Orange Salad
Insalata baccalà arancia
Salt cod orange salad is one of those unlikely combinations that tastes just right when it hits the palate. A marriage of salt, sweet, juicy and dry that’ll make you wish for more.
One of the wonders of salt cod is the flakiness of the meat. Once the fish has been soaked in fresh cold water and boiled, the meat peels off bone and skin in chewy, white flakes with a firm texture a little bit like scallops. And paired with juicy slices of orange as they do in Sicily it comes very close to the perfect seafood salad.
