Stockfish is the name given to unsalted fish, generally cod, which has been dried simply by wind and cold air. Traditionally, the fish is dried on wooden racks, which are referred to as ‘hjell’ in Norway. Stockfish is Norway’s longest sustained export, dating back to the viking age. It’s popular in many Scandinavian countries, as well as West Africa and parts of Italy.
If you’re not able to easily source stockfish, you can use fresh cod. You will need to add the cod for the last fifteen minutes of simmering, and add two teaspoons of fish sauce at this stage, to amplify the flavour.

This sauce pairs perfectly with our struncatura pasta, which is made using a combination of durum wheat semolina, whole durum wheat semolina, and rye. This pasta has a delicate nutty taste, as well as a slightly rough texture, which allows it to hold the sauce better.
If you’re looking for a lighter pasta, you can alternatively use our strozzapreti pasta , which is often accompanied by tomato based sauces.

If you have fresh saffron, it’s also recommended that you sprinkle a small pinch on top of the dish, to really emphasise the flavour.
