About Pacific Cod
Pacific cod is closely related to Atlantic Cod (Gadus morhua), with a somewhat sweeter flavor and similarly firm, flakey texture.
Pacific cod (Gadus macrocephalus) is also known as “gray cod” or “true cod”, to differentiate it from “Ling cod” (Ophiodon elongatus) and “Black cod” (Anoplopoma fimbria; AKA Sablefish), which are not members of the cod (Gadus) family.
Storage and serving suggestions
Keep our cod frozen until ready to use. Thaw it overnight in the refrigerator. Or, you can speed the process without harming quality by immersing the vacuum-packed portions in cold water for 20-30 minutes, until flexible.
Like all of our frozen seafood, our Alaskan cod is sushi-safe.
Alaskan Cod fillet portions can be baked, broiled, poached, steamed, sautéed, grilled, or deep-fried, and are perfect for fish soup, chowder, bouillabaise, or stew. (You can steam or poach frozen fillets without thawing them first.)
The portions are done when they flake easily under fork pressure and have just turned opaque. Because Pacific cod is very lean, DO NOT overcook it ... 7-8 minutes is usually enough, whether you are poaching or cooking the fish.
Thanks to its mild flavor, Alaskan Cod is complemented by a wide array of sauces and seasonings ... including our Organic Lemon Pepper Seasoning and our popular, versatile Organic Marinade Mix.
