      Title: Catalan shredded salt cod salad
 Categories: Fish
      Yield: 4 Servings
      1 lb Salt cod -- boneless, dried
      1 sm Red or green bell pepper --
    1/2 lg Red onion -- thinly sliced
      1 lg Tomato -- thinly sliced
    1/3 c  Fruity Spanish olive oil
    1/4 c  Red wine vinegar
      4 lg Garlic cloves -- finely
    1/2 ts Freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 c  Oil cured black olives
      3    Hardboiled eggs --
    1/2 sm Bunch oregano leaves- finely
  To prepare the salt cod, rinse it well and then immerse it in a
  container of cold water (cut into chunks, if necessary, to fit).
  Refrigerate, changing the soaking water 5 or 6 times, until softened
  and mild (24 to 48 hours, depending on how stiff and salty it was to
  begin with).
  Drain the cod, place it in a large saucepan with the onion and the bay
  leaves, and cover with cold water. Bring just to a boil, reduce the
  heat to very low, and cover (taste the water at this stage and, if it
  seems excessively salty, then drain, cover again with fresh cold
  water, and bring to a boil). Simmer very gently until the fish is
  opaque and plumped, and falls apart into heavy flakes when prodded,
  about 20 minutes. Drain, pat dry, and remove the bones and skin, if
  necessary. Separate into large flakes and use right away, or
  refrigerate for up to 2 days before continuing with the recipe.
  Drain and press the cod with your fingers to extract as much water as
  possible. Shred the cod by hand into thin strips and transfer it to a
  large bowl.
  Core, seed and wash the pepper.  Cut into thin rings. Separate rings
  of onion. Select 1 large, firm, ripe tomato and slice it thinly.
  Add the pepper rings, onion, and tomato to the bowl and toss together
  gently. In another bowl, combine the oil, vinegar, garlic, pepper,
  and if desired, a little salt (the salt cod is usually still quite
  salty; taste it to determine if the vinaigrette needs any salt).
  Whisk the vinaigrette together until thoroughly blended.
  Using your hands, toss the salad with the vinaigrette until all the
  ingredients are coated. Transfer the salad to a platter and garnish
  the edges with olives and wedges of hardboiled egg. Scatter the
  oregano over the dish.  Yields 6 servings
