Salt cod in tomatoes

Saltfish Panfried for the Outback
A lightweight, well-preserved food, packed with lots of protein
Saltfish the Hardy Way– for when you and a close friend are out in the country camping/ hunting and need a hardy meal before hitting the hay or to keep your belly full for a long day. Saltfish is a great asset to have in the country because it is dry meat (easy to pack), preserved (doesn’t require refrigeration), and packs tons of bang for buck in regards to protein (salted fish is only about ⅓ of it’s original size).
