This is an excellent recipe! Bacalao is a staple at our big family dinners but I never cared for it much because I found it plain and salty. I decided to try this recipe and everyone loved it! I halved the amount of capers and olives because I assumed it would come out salty but it didn't. I soaked the fish overnight and changed the water 3 times and it came out fantastic. I will use the full amount of olives next time. I prepared it with boiled Yucca and maduros. I also added some of my homemade sofrito. WOW!
OMG, this is absolutely delicious. Made according to recipe. Next time will add a little more Cod. I used Frozen Cod and had to add a little salt to dish since Cod was not salted. This was a BIG hit in my family tonight. Cooked Yucca for a side dish.
I wanted to try salt cod and chose this dish as the vehicle. I didn't like the salt cod (although I really like fresh cod) and I think it spoiled the rest of the dish for me. I followed the recipe. It's just personal preference, I think.
just like my grandmothers cooking!! LOVE IT!
My husband is from Mexico and bacalao is a traditional dish for Christmas and New Years. This recipe was just what we were looking for, we only omitted the hard-boiled eggs to fit the Mexican version. We served it with bolillo rolls which is also traditional. I was able to find the dry salted cod at New Seasons and Whole Foods. Be sure to follow exactly the directions for soaking the cod and changing out the water to get just the right balance of salt in the recipe.
This dish was AMAZING!!! I didn't have any garlic at hand so I used garlic salt. Right before I poured the water and wine over it I seasoned it with salt and pepper.I baked it in the oven at 350 for an hour covered with foil. I then served it with white rice but I'm thinking next time I will serve it with green bananas!! YUMMY!!!
