Salt Cod Facts
Salt cod has been a winter staple in Greece for generations.
It is particularly popular in the spring, and the following dish is often on the menu at city restaurants on Fridays during Lent.
The dried, creamy-coloured sides of cod, sparkling with salt flakes, can often be seen in the central market in Athens and on the stalls in many street markets.
Although it is an acquired taste, salt cod does have an exotic aura about it and, if you get a plump piece of good quality fish, it can be very appetizing.
Served with plenty of thickly sliced fresh bread, this dish makes a main course for four or a dinner party first course for six.
It can also be served cold, as part of the mezethes.
Where To Find Salt Cod
Salt cod can often be bought from Italian and Spanish groceries, as well as from Greek food stores. It is often sold in small squares, ready for soaking and draining.
If you buy it in one piece, cut it into 7cm squares after soaking.
