Baccala in Red Sauce with Potatoes

Spread the love

Baccalà is a traditional dish in Southern Italy on Christmas Eve (La Vigilia). Every family prepares it differently. Some families fry it, make a cold salad and my family prepares it in tomato sauce with potatoes. I love Baccalà in every preparation! The important part is to soak out all the salt before cooking. I soak mine for 3 -4 days changing the water every day. So this dish is definitely something you need to plan for and cannot be made spontaneously.
