Desalted Codfish Kokotxas
Kokotxas are one of the juiciest parts of the cod; it is the chin part of the fish, just before the gills. They are small pieces that are very gelatinous. Kokotxas are a highly prized product, famous in the cuisine of Spain; in fact, their name comes from Basque. In the Basque Country they are traditionally used for pil-pil sauce.
We recommend cooking them in oil, in tempura, always checking that the temperature never exceeds 60°C. They are also ideal for cooking in sauce because of the gelatin they contain.
What makes Giraldo cod special?
Hooked in the clear waters of the Faroe Islands and processed directly on board; Giraldo cod is cured for months in salt at a controlled temperature and cut into uniform parts to ensure even desalting and uniform taste. It is desalted only by customer order and only with ice water-which is why this cod can be called the cod of masters!

Desalted Codfish - Kokotxas FAO 27
Vacuum-packed, fresh, 1 kg
Giraldo buys only wild cod caught by hook and line in the cold waters off Iceland and the Faroe Islands, relating only to selected and now historic small vessels.
The trademark is then the desalting and draining process, consolidating Giraldo worldwide. From 1973 to the present, Giraldo has always had one goal: to elevate a poor traditional Basque dish to be considered, the Cod of Masters.
