Hello, and thanks for your question.

My apologies that no one had replied to you, earlier.

Yes, it would be fine to freeze the cooked fish for a few weeks, for later use. However, only do this if the salt cod did not come in a frozen state to begin with. Also, if there is a great amount of fish, you might want to freeze it in a few, smaller portion packages (plastic freezer bags are best) if you feel you won't use it all for one meal. You can find some nice recipes for cod fish cakes here:
