You can buy dried salted code in your local area - it should be a pretty common fish and style of preparation. Preparing the salted cod for the consumption and cooking, you want to soak it in water for at least 3 hours - just to remove some of the initial salt. Even after that, the cod might be still salty for your taste. We recommend have it slowly simmer in hot water for an additional 15-20 minutes - but not too long that it starts breaking up.
