Baccalà Fritta alla Santa Elisabetta


Recipe from: Adriana's Italian Gourmet Cookies

2 pounds of salted cod
flour
½ cup of extra virgin olive oil
lemon juice from 2 lemons
fresh parsley, chopped
pepper
3 eggs

Bathe the salted cod (baccalà) in a pot of cold water for two days to reduce the salt content. When ready heat 1 inch of olive oil in a deep skillet, dip the baccalà in flour and shake off the excess. Fry until golden, drain on paper towels, and serve with lemon wedges. Alternative method: Make a marinade with olive oil, lemon juice and pepper. Cut the baccalà into 2 inch pieces, and marinate overnight. Prepare batter by beating eggs together with 3 tablespoons of flour, salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a deep skillet Dredge the baccalà in flour and dip into the batter. Fry until golden on both sides.
