Salted Cod Stew with cherry tomatoes

We revisit the use of salted cod, or as we know it in Maltese, ‘bakkaljaw’.
Production of salted cod dates back at least 500 years and is mainly cod which is preserved by drying after salting. Salted cod is available for purchase from the delicatessen counter of Arkadia Foodstore.
