Icelandic Stockfish Bits
Premium Quality Icelandic Stockfish Bits (Round Cod) – The word “Stockfish” represents any of the species of certain salt-water fish (Cod, Tusk, Haddock, Sey, or Ling) that has been completely de-hydrated, with no added salt or preservatives. The cleaned fresh fish with head and entrails removed are sliced in small pieces, and artificially dried. The drying process removes approximately 70% of the water, and retains the essential vitamins and nutrients. The de-hydrated fish (STOCKFISH BITS) acquires a peculiar flavor/taste that is totally different from the fresh fish flavor. The nutritional value of 1-Kg of stockfish bits is the same as approx. 5-Kg of fresh fish. Stockfish is one of the richest known sources of protein, Calcium, Iron and B-Vitamins. Stockfish can be adapted to suite most tastes and palates. When adequately soaked, the fish regains its original weight, and the flesh becomes milky. The fish can be cooked in the same way as fresh cod-fish – poached, fried, creamed or grilled – and can be used in a wide variety of nutritional and tasty dishes. When stored in a dry, non-humid and cool place, stockfish can keep indefinitely. Imported from Iceland.
