It is made by salting and drying fresh cod to preserve it, creating a firm texture and intense flavor that can be used in a variety of dishes.

Its unique taste makes it a favorite among seafood lovers around the world, and its use in traditional Portuguese dishes has made it a cultural icon in the country.
