Bring some water to boil in a saucepan, then put the steaming basket with the cod fillets in the saucepan, drizzle with a little oil and lemon juice and sprinkle with a handful of chopped parsley and a pinch of salt.
If after preparing this recipe you have any cod left over, put it in a bowl, add a little water and just enough beer, season with salt and pepper, and make fishballs with your hands - then fry them! Just see how good they are!
Did you know that cod is a bit like pig? This is because one should not throw any part of it away. In Norway they even eat the tongue, while in some areas of Africa its head is much sought after! Another curiosity: the name ‘baccalà’ - meaning ‘salt cod’ in Italian - comes from the Flemish "kabeljaw", which means "fish sticks", a reference to the fact that dries salted cod becomes hard.
