Cooking Instructions

Preparing Saltfish

All recipes start with the salt fish at the prepared state.

Place the salt fish in a large mixing bowl with enough cold water to cover it and let it soak for 24 hours in the refrigerator, changing the water 2 or 3 times. (For example – 1 lb. salted fish use 6 cups cold water)

Drain the water from the bowl, carefully remove fish and pat with a paper towel to remove any excess water. The fish is now ready to be cooked.

*Longer soaking or more frequent water changing will further decrease the salt content.

**If a higher salt content is desired adjust the soaking time accordingly.

Preparing Smoked Herring

In a refrigerator, soak 12 oz. (340g) of smoked herring fillets in 6 cups (1.5 liters) of fresh water for 4 hours, changing the water two times or cook according to your favorite recipe.

*Longer soaking or more frequent changing of the water will further decrease the salt content.

**If a higher salt content is desired adjust the soaking time accordingly.
