Boil palamita in rocchi or filleted respecting this proportion: one kilogram of palamita, six liters of water, two ounces of salt. Cook for about 40-45 minutes without overboiling the water, controlling the boiling with a lid, in short, simmering the water. Once drained, strip the palamita rocchi if not previously filleted.
