A surprising number of specialty dishes, from Swedish gravlax to Indian Bombay duck, are made with salt fish. Some of these—mostly appetizers—are eaten without being cooked. On first thought, this fact may turn you off from these delicacies, but remember that caviar is not cooked either. I enjoy most of these dishes very much, but I want to make my own, starting with very fresh fish.
