Where to buy Norwegian Salted Cod (for Bacalhau)?

Hi y'all,

I'm interested to know where the best places are to pick up some Norwegian salted cod to make some bacalhau. I made a test-batch using salted cod "bits", but I'm sure that these are of inferior quality, even if they were very practical.

thanks!

    1. Wherever Portuguese live and shop. That said, as Full tummy asked, it's likely to be found where the demand is.

      1. I haven't seen Norwegian, but Diana's Seafood has Gaspe salt cod, for a price. They usually have some less expensive salt cod as well.

        1. Salt cod is salt cod...in my opinion.

          I am Portuguese and we buy our cod at Tavora at St Clair and Caledonia. Lots of selection and sizes.

            I bought some salted cod at Costco around Christmas but I'm not sure if it is a regular item. Big piece, probably about 1/2 of the fish and boneless.

              Thanks for the suggestion. I went there tonight and bought some of their boneless Norwegian cod at 7.99/lb. Only thing is that the scale by the fish is way off compared to the checkout cashier, by like 30% higher. So, make sure to verify before you buy.

            2. I have seen salted cod at the Billy Bishop location for CostCo. In addition I would look at Starsky's chain of Grocery stores as they carry a lot of fish items that I haven't seen elsewhere.

                I saw it at London South Costco, $16/kg. boneless, and very white (a good sign).
