Stockfish: The Secret of Dried Fish

Stockfish is one of the oldest fish preservation techniques, dating back to the 12th century in Norway. This method is all about letting the cod dry naturally in the open air. It needs the right weather and environment to work. The stockfish keeps its nutritional value because there's no salt and it dries slowly, so it becomes a fibrous product with a strong flavour. The woody texture of stockfish means it needs to soak for a long time before cooking, so the fish can rehydrate and become soft and tasty.

The history of stockfish is closely linked to European sailors of the past. They took it with them on long voyages because it kept for a long time without spoiling. This dried fish was a key source of protein for travellers and a staple food for coastal populations.

Today, stockfish is a prized ingredient in many regional Italian cuisines, where it is used in traditional dishes like stockfish all'anconetana. Its preparation requires specific culinary techniques to enhance its flavor and texture. For example, stockfish must be beaten and soaked for several days, changing the water frequently to remove any trace of drying and make it ready for cooking.
In the kitchen, stockfish is appreciated for its strong flavor and its ability to absorb the flavors of the ingredients with which it is prepared. It is often used in soups, stews, and salads, where its fibrous texture adds a unique dimension to the dishes.
