Fresh cod is a lean, sweet and versatile fish, once the champion of fish and chips, the soft white fish is capable of so much more. We bring you an eclectic mix of cod fish recipes including salted cod to illustrate its other capabilities ranging from haute cuisine to good old comfort food.

Dried cod is equally sought after with its diverse cooking capabilities and is prized for its sweetness and chewier texture. You’ve probably seen this distinctive looking dried fish hung to dry or stacked in piles at the market, though it might be hard to decipher what to do with this fish if you aren’t familiar with it.

Perhaps the most famous of all dried cod dishes is Bacalhau the ultimate Portuguese comfort food. The most important thing to remember when working with salted cod is to factor in the rehydration time prior to cooking.
