Winter is the season of citrusses, and Andalucia produces some of the tastiest oranges that exist. This salad resembles a lot the ensalada malgueña (salad from Málaga), the remohón of Totalán, and the arriera of Torrox. The main difference is that there are no potatoes and it uses more cod.
300 grs. of salted cod
Andalusian 'aloreñas' olives
extra virgin olive oil
Desalt the cod for 24 hours, changing the water a couple of times. For a salad it doesn't need to be too much desalted.
With a blowtorch you can give it a smoky touch. Crumble it.
Chop the scallions.
Peal the oranges and take out the segments.
In a bowl, squeeze the rest of the orange, to be used for the dressing.
In the bowl with the juice, add vinegar and oil. Emulsify.
Slice the eggs.
The last thing is to mount the salad, season it and enjoy!
You might notice that salt does not appear anywhere here; the cod providing quite enough of it.
