Bacalao a la Marinera (Fisherman’s Cod); Has Elvis left the building with Michael? — 8 Comments

  1. I had forgotten the brief union of Michael Jackson and Ms. Presley – guess it didn’t work out for them. Another thing the King and the King of Pop have in common – sycophants surrounding them who didn’t have their best interests at heart. Sad, as both were enormous talents.

  2. How clever are you to make Bacalao with fresh cod? We have tried making it with salt cod (readily available at the market here). But we haven’t figured out how long to presoak the fish to leach out the salt without making the fish completely tasteless and mushy.
    (I’m reeling at the idea of the TV seance. Isn’t this taking Reality TV just a little too far?)

  3. Ciaochowlinda, It’s sneaking up on us, isn’t it? Hope this works for you :-))
    Thanks, Food Hunter!
    Zoomie, it is sad… And it’s sad they can’t be accorded a bit of dignity now….
    Elizabeth, in Andorra it was already soaked at the markets… fresh is better IMHO. Reality TV…. When I watch TV I want to watch paid professionals….. And a TV seance????

  4. I’ve only seen salt cod in stacks of those flat board-like shapes here. We really should try making it again. It’s delicious when it’s made well.

  5. Jeanne, I can only get these weird almond flakes… but they taste right ;-))
    Elizabeth, they had the stacks in Andorra…. Reminded me of lutefisk. But the fishmongers always had some ready to cook as well
