How to Make Puerto Rican Gazpacho

You are going to need:

  • 1 lb. dried deboned salted cod (follow package instruction to desalt)
  • Ripe avocado
  • White onion
  • Large tomato
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil to taste

About dried cod (bacalao)

Make sure that you read the direction in the dried salted cod fish package.

To make this Puerto Rican Gazpacho recipe, you need to soak the dried cod in water for about two hours or more. By doing this, it will remove the salt from the dried cod.

Do not boil the dry cod, just soak it.

Now for my taste, I enjoy my gazpacho salad a little bit salty. Also, depending on your dried salted cod, you might have to read the directions for soaking.

Some may require overnight soaking. Again, it goes back to the type of dried salted cod fish you use.

Now in the photo, you are not going to see tomatoes for allergy reasons. We just simply add the tomatoes when we are making our sandwich.

Ok back to the Puerto Rican cod salad.
