Boiled Baccalà Recipe - Baccalà Bollito

By

Boiled Baccalà, or Baccalà Bollito: This is the simplest way to prepare baccalà, i.e. salt cod. But don't let simplicity fool you. It's good.

Prep Time: 48 hours

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 48 hours, 5 minutes

Yield: 4 servings boiled baccalà

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 pounds (700 g) soaked baccalà
  • Lemon juice, olive oil, or mayonnaise to taste

Preparation:

Take 1 1/2 pounds (700 g) soaked baccalà (see instructions if need be) and gently immerse it in rapidly boiling, unsalted water. Cook for five to eight minutes, drain, and serve with lemon juice, olive oil, or mayonnaise to taste.

A wine? White, and since baccalà is flavorful I might go with a Vernaccia di San Gimignano.
