General Information about Cod Fish plus Cod Recipes


Cod belong to the family Gadidae, but the name is also used for a variety of other fishes. It is a round bodied seawater (marine) fish classed as a "white" fish, found primarily in the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic Oceans, including the North Sea, Icelandic waters and the Barents Sea. Cod can be large fish with some species growing to over 2m/6 feet long. 


It has a mild flavour and a dense very white flesh which flakes easily, and is very popular in many cuisines, particularly western cultures and is widely used in the UK's "fish and chip" shop market.  Cod has been an important economic commodity in Europe for over 1000 years, including the dried salted cod market  (also known as saltfish), which was used on long voyages from Europe to the New World and which consequently took a place in cuisines outside of Europe.


Suitable substitutes for cod:   include Haddock,  Hake, Catfish, Halibut.

Serving allowance per person:  Allow 100g-175g/4-6oz per person for a main course
