  1. Soak cod in a large bowl of water in the refrigerator for 24 hours, changing soaking water 4 to 5 times to remove the salt.
  2. Rinse the cod under running water; drain. Remove skin and bones.
  3. Transfer cod to a saucepan and cover with water. Heat over low heat until it is soft and flakes easily with a fork, about 30 minutes. Drain cod and let cool until easily handled, about 15 minutes. Shred finely and transfer to a large saucepan.
  4. Place saucepan over low heat. Pour in olive oil in a slow, steady stream, beating vigorously, until mixture thickens to the consistency of mayonnaise, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, parsley, salt, and white pepper. Let cool before serving, about 15 minutes.
