This was the image at the Iceland booth at the Boston Seafood Show 2018- they look nice and friendly, for Viking descendants!
True cod is a delicious, sturdy white fish with a large flake that works well in many fish recipes, and just about any recipe that calls for a white fish like halibut, bass or sole. It's also a nourishing lean protein source, with enough omega-3s and B-12s to make it a great weekly choice for a healthy meal. The particular true cod we get from Erik the Red Seafood is the cut they call the "top loin" and is a remarkably thick and even, boneless and skinless portion of larger fish. It makes wonderful fish and chips, outstanding fish tacos, and is the star of the show in one of my favorite winter recipes - cod and potatoes.
