Desalting Guide Below
Before consumption, salted fish products must be desalted. The length of the desalting process depends on the thickness of the fish and on how long it has been cured, but is as much as 3 days for the thickest pieces. For the boneless skinless pieces or product typically only 1 day of desalting is necessary.
To achieve the best result we have provided these simple guidelines for the desalting process.
1. Take the precut portion of codfish and rinse excessive salt under the tap.
2. Place the fish in a large bowl of water. A general rule is three times as much water as fish. The bowl of fish should be kept in cool conditions, around 43 - 47 degrees Fahrenheit during the whole process.
3. Change the water once a day.
4. Some of the thinner cuts of the fish are ready to be cooked after 2 days . For the thickest cuts we recommend 3 days. After this process either cook or you may freeze for future use / ready to cook.
Desalting Instructions per the packaging
In refrigerator, soak (1 lb) of the salted fish in 6 cups of fresh water. Change the water 3 times during the day. Then parboil the fish in 6 cups of fresh water for 7-10 minutes. Then drain the water.
