Our current supply of Icelandic Cod Fillet is Product of Iceland and is Wild Caught. It has a lean, mild flavor profile with large flakes and a tender-firm texture. Icelandic Cod can also be known as Atlantic Cod and are a little sweeter than the Pacific variety. It has translucent white to pink-tinged flesh when raw that turn white when cooked. Both are less firm and less sweet tasting compared to Haddock.  Because it is so lean, cod cooks quickly and benefits from moist heat. The neutral flavor makes an excellent canvas for herbs and spices, like tarragon, dill & cilantro. Recommended cooking methods are baking, broiling, deep frying, sautéing and steaming.
