atlantic cod

Cod need cold, deep waters to thrive, and thrive they do, in Canada's ice-cold North Atlantic ocean. Cod has a mild flavour and lean, pure white fillets with large distinctive flakes. From beer battered traditional fish and chips, to Bacalao, to dishes at some of the world's finest restaurants, the sheer versatility of cooking applications makes this fish a favourite of home cooks and professional chefs alike.
