I first tried salt cod pureed with cream and potatoes in culinary school. I still love it. I usually use yams for their superior nutritional value, sweetness, and color. In my neighborhood it's far easier to find salted Alaskan pollack than authentic Bacalau. It is, in fact, wild caught and from a sustainable fishery. Don't forget roasted garlic, good quality EVOO, and chives.
