Hello again, I was thinking of posting a recipe, but first I wanted to get a clear idea of how you call things, and how do you eat codfish. Ok. so how do you call when you fry minced onion in a bit of olive oil? Do you eat codfish? If so how do you usually find it in stores? I mean, fresh,

    Default Two questions about names and cod fish


    Hello again,

    I was thinking of posting a recipe, but first I wanted to get a clear idea of how you call things, and how do you eat codfish.

    Ok. so how do you call when you fry minced onion in a bit of olive oil?

    Do you eat codfish? If so how do you usually find it in stores? I mean, fresh, dried and salted, or any other form?

    Thanks

    Pat

    Saying fry minced onions in olive oil works
    Yes codfish is a food I eat anyhow, I can get mine fresh at the store or frozen. I personally have not seen it dried and salted but might be in other areas.
    Hope this helps, look forward to see your recipe post.

    Usually for the onions you would say, "Mince onions & saute in olive oil." Thanks so much for posting!!!

    Pat ,

    I have only found cod fish fresh at the store or frozen. I have not seen it dried and salted where I shop. But like Kim, said it might be in other areas. Hope this helps.

    Hi Pat, we call that Saute. (pronouced Saw-tay) But I'm sure we'll get it just fine no matter how you put it.

    >Do you eat codfish? If so how do you usually find it in stores? I mean, fresh, dried and salted, or any other form?<

    I'm on the east coast, we generally buy cod either fresh (filets) or frozen. In the Midwest Cod was available salted or canned (gelled).

    I've not seen Cod available dried in the US, but have in Canada, If that helps.

    Welcome to the forums,

    I have trouble finding Cod here in Middle America but I found Flounder works well in it's place. Oh how I miss the early morning trips for fresh fish off the boats while I lived in Maryland! We get plenty of fresh fish here but it's Catfish, bass, ect.

    It's funny how diferent countries have diferent foods. I never tasted fresh codfish, and never seen it canned neither.

    Just a remark.

    I assume you come from a portuguese background . Yes, here in Portugal we all have salted dried cod and we cook it in several ways. you just need to soak it for 24 hours changing the water more or less every six hours and then there are lots of delicious recipes you can use. Here it is difficult to find it fresh.

    Sorry about that. I thought you lived somewhere in the USA and had portuguese parents. It is really difficult to find salted cod outside Portugal, I have heard and seen. When I was in England studying, I was living with a family and asked my mom to bring some salted cod so I could cook "Bacalhau com Natas" (Cod with Cream) which is really tasty but they disliked the smell of it and they weren't very fond of its taste. Luckily, I had to eat the rest of it with my room-mate. In Germany the only place I found some was in a neighborhood called "Small Lisbon" - the only place where you could find "Pastel de Natas" - I wonder why!

    Good luck with the recipe!

    Normally I purchase Cod fish fresh, bowl for about one hour and a half, to get the salt out, drain the liquid, add more fresh water, add red potatoes, onions, scallions, dry jerk seasoning, and let it bowl for about another hour and serve as a soup or over a bed of rice.
