Croquetas de bacalao are a great Spanish aperitif classic and one of the most famous Tapas: the "appetizers" of Spanish cuisine, for aperitif time or as an appetizer.
Giraldo Croquettes are precooked, so a very quick frying in hot seed oil (1-2 minutes) will suffice. However, for a light version, they can be cooked in a preheated oven for 5 minutes in a grill version at 392°F.
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!

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.
