I was pleasantly surprised at how good the quality of this wasMay 03, 2011
I must say, I was a bit concerned about how I received the salt fish in the mail. I cautiously cooked the salt fish this morning, and was AMAZED and very pleasantly surprised at the excellent quality of this salt fish. I did not find one single bone in the fish, and here I was preparing myself for the long drawn out process of having to pull the fish apart and remove all the bones. I WAS VERY HAPPY that this salt fish was of such excellent quality, and I THANK the seller for making sure the quality was excellent. THANK YOU. I am VERY HAPPY and cannot wait to have my ackee and saltfish :)

Hard to find item is better than at the Italian deli...Jan 14, 2012
The only local Italian deli sold out of this for Christmas. It was a real treat to find it online. Two nice smaller (than I usually buy) fillets arrived, wrapped in plastic with a (totally melted) ice pack -- you shouldn't really need an ice pack for salted fish, should you? It was packed in a lot of styrofoam peanuts which also really seems unnecessary for fish. Maybe we could cut back on the shipping charges somehow?
I cover mine in water and bring just to a boil then quickly drain. It takes 3 times with the deli cod, but only 2 times with this. It's a bit more delicate (due to smaller fish?). I always break mine apart by hand and feel for bones, and just like the deli's, this had exactly one bone in it. It's like they want you to have to keep checking for bones. There's always just one.
On my second order of this, I got the dregs from the bottom of the case. It might weigh 1.5 pounds, but it's made up of tiny scraps of fish, all very thin. No full fillets. I'm very disappointed in the drop in quality and have dropped the stars rating to 4. BTW, they had 4 left when I bought 3 and now they still have 2! must have found more crumbs on the floor. Don't buy until they get a new shipment in would be my recommendation.
The second batch did arrive without a plastic bag and ice, which was really never necessary. But it was poorly wrapped in white paper and the outer box was broken open at the corner. That wonderful (to me) smell of salted cod got me a lot of complaints at my mailbox company. These should be well-wrapped in white butcher's waxed paper, people, before shipping, and shipped in a box that is sealed, please.

Not as picturedMar 15, 2013
By Angela Sifakis
I was dissappointed in the fish I received. I was expecting to see the fish as photographed in this ad. The fish I received came in 3 seperate packages and were small pieces. I had a specific greek dish I was going to make with the fish and I can not make it because of the size of the pieces. I have not cooked with it yet and can not comment on it's quality or taste. I however was very upset that the photo used does not match the fish I have at home now.
