In Italy there is a little bit of confusion concerning the difference between Stockfish and Baccalà. They both derive from Norwegian Cod, but are different products. The difference is that Stockfish is naturally dried, while Baccalà goes through a salting process, or it is salted and then dried. This recipe is prepared with Norwegian Stockfish, which should be soaked for at least 48 hours before being cooked.
