La Ribera - Salt Cod
La Ribera is just ahead on your right. It's the shop with the dark red awning. Make your way over to the entrance and stop for a moment.
[4 SECOND PAUSE]
La Ribera dates back to when the market was still functioning. The shop specializes in salt cod, essentially Atlantic cod preserved in coarse salt and which has to be soaked in several changes of water over a day to render it edible. Prior to refrigeration, this was the only way to enjoy cod year-round.
