This is my own version of a typical Moorish Remojon. It is a bright and exotic salad of salt cod and oranges and is typically served as a tapas dish. I love it as a simple and satisfying summer salad but it also works well as a starter.

Ingredients for Bacalao and Orange Salad

¼ kilo salt cod, soaked for 24 - 48 hours and drained
2 medium ripe tomatoes
1 small onion
2 cloves garlic
2 large oranges (sour ones are traditionally used but I use sweet ones)
6 green pitted olives cut into pieces
2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

How to make Bacalao and Orange Salad

  • Bring a large pan of water to the boil and add the bacalao.
  • Turn the heat right down and leave while you prepare the other ingredients.
  • Finely chop the tomatoes and onion, peel and crush the garlic and place together in a serving bowl.
  • Peel the oranges and break into segments and then cut each orange piece in half, add to the bowl.
  • Remove the cod from the pan, drain and shred removing the skin and bones.
  • Add the fish to the salad, drizzle with the oil and vinegar, add the olives and mix well.
  • Serve with fresh bread.
