Pesce Stocca (+pic) @Arthur Ave – Stock Fish

So if you google pesce stocca you realize it is legit–not just one of those American marketing ploys to get you to think something is Italian when its not (panino anyone?).  Everything you get back is strictly in Italian!

It means stock fish or dried cod.  I did some research because as you can see it doesn’t look like our typical bacalhau that comes in pasty white dried pieces.  From the poor translations I got, apparently in Southern Italy they use swordfish instead of cod.  If anyone knows more, I’d really appreciate it :).
