These delicious tenderloins are desalted and ready to prepare in your favorite Spanish recipe. Center cut and boneless, they are the finest part of the bacalao.
Bacalao has been a favorite in Spain for centuries. Because it could be stored and transported without spoiling, it was enjoyed across the country. The Basque region became identified with the finest bacalao recipes, partly because much of the cod originally arrived in its ports before salting.
Normally cod must be soaked for at least a day to remove the salt before cooking. Our friends at La Bacaladera have done this for you - each beautiful white loin is desalted to perfection, then frozen and vacuum packed.
Simply thaw in the refrigerator and you are ready to prepare a number of classic Spanish recipes. These loins are particularly good for Bacalao al Pil-Pil because they are skin on, essential for creating the creamy, rich sauce associated with this dish.
Each package is shipped with dry ice and should be stored in the freezer until it is to be prepared.

"We make an Italian dish on Christmas eve with the Bacalao and we usually have to buy it a week in advance and soak it all week to desalt it. This year it was unavailable in our area and my older relatives we upset that we would not be able to have this traditional meal this year. When I heard this I went online to see if I could ordcer it but everyone said we wouldn't have enopugh time to desalt it. When your company offered it already desalted I jumped at the chance to order it and used the express shipping to get it hear in plenty of time. It made me look good to the elders in the family and it made the recipe DELICIOUS!! Thank You - I will be purchasing from your company again. "
