I've been drying my own salt fish for years, ever since we lived on our yacht in the Phillipines. Thanks for sharing your detailed instructions with everyone, Robyn, and for emphasising that the quality of the salt makes a big difference. Mmm, I feel taugeh with salt fish coming on!

Hi Wendy- love taugeh salt fish! This is just one of those foods that's so much better homemade but seems like something you can't do at home ... till you do it.

very precise info.. in the philippines dry fish is very popular and it is in our cuisines and culture especially in the people at the seaside..

I am not great sea food lover, but at times I eat fish curry. Dried salt fish is going to be new experience for my stomach :)

I'm not a big fan of dried salted fish. But I do have good memories of my Auntie drying fish under the sun in the Philippines. Sometimes she made it with both salt and sugar. These are then fried to a crisp. Definitely predated the candied bacon that has been all the rage in recent years.

I was so inspired by this post that I went to the fish markets on Sunday, bought 6 yellow-tail, split them and salted them, and hung them out to dry yesterday morning. With wonderful results. We ate a half, sliced thin, as a snack with beer last night. Super!

Even though it's winter in Sydney it's dry and the sun is strong. Perfect weather.

Leah, that sounds great. Especially fried.

Lynn, thanks for letting us know the recipe worked out for you! Love comments like this. I agree -- a perfect beer snack.
