Can you see the cod in the blue trays?
Because of its low-fat content, Cod is an ideal fish to preserve this way. These days, refrigeration means that salting is no longer necessary. Instead, it is a matter of taste, much like prosciutto or local Jamon. The alchemy of the salting process changes the texture of the fish giving it a distinctive bite and savouriness. The price depends on the quality of the fish, as well as what section of the fish it is. For example, the tail end will cost less. Besides salt cod, La Ribera is known for its tubs of olives as well as cheeses, hams, and conservas.
