Although refrigeration has hurt the stockfish trade, tons of cod are still air-dried commercially in Scandinavia each fall; Norway alone exports 50 million to 55 million pounds of stockfish to Africa in a year, according to A. J. McClane’s Encyclopedia of Fish Cookery. Typically, those cod destined to be stockfish are merely gutted and hung out to dry on huge wooden racks. Of course, a few fish can be dried for home consumption without large racks; often, the gutted fish are hung under the eave of the house.

In fact, I consider the whole side of pork to be salt pork if it is cured and not smoked; if smoked, it’s bacon, I say. Usually, salt pork is the thickness of slab bacon and is prepared with the skin on. Slabs can be cut into convenient lengths and widths. I find that 6-by-12-inch pieces work just fine. You can salt-cure the whole side, then trim it for storage; of course, the trimmings can be used for seasoning meat. ⁄2 side of hog meat, trimmed and cut into sections lots of salt 1 Rub the pieces of side meat on all sides with salt.

They also make a similar product, tarako, from saltcured Pacific pollack. In any case, the roe of cod is also excellent and can be used in this recipe. Menhaden, American shad, hickory shad, mooneye, and other good herring also yield excellent roe. My favorite Batarekh, however, is made from the roe of bluegills, which is readily available to most Americans. Most of the farm ponds in this country are overstocked with bluegills, and these are fat with roe in summer. Catch some and try Batarekh. True, it’s an acquired taste, but before long you’ll crave more—especially if you have been on a no-salt diet.
