About cod fillets

Cod is a popular variety of fish that you'll find in most seafood departments in grocery stores across the U.S. You'll find primarily either Atlantic cod or Pacific cod. As the names suggest, these fish are found in either the Atlantic or Pacific oceans. Cod prefer colder waters, so they're caught off the coast in northern regions. Other fish are sometimes mislabeled as cod, as it can look very similar to other white-meat fish, especially when it's filleted. Other fish you might see labeled as cod include hake, pollock, and perch. All of these fish are considered groundfish.

The flaky, white meat of cod has a mild taste and is popular in many dishes. Your local grocery store likely carries several types of cod, including fillets, steaks, and whole fish. This type of fish can be purchased frozen or fresh as well as smoked or breaded. Because it doesn't have a strong flavor, cod lends itself well to many fish recipes. Most of the cod fillets you'll encounter in the U.S. are Pacific cod. Although Pacific cod isn't quite as firm as Atlantic cod, it's still a popular and tasty fish.

While cod isn't the healthiest type of fish, it still has many health benefits. Cod is an excellent source of protein with 19 grams in one 3-ounce serving. It's also low in calories, providing just 90 in a single serving. Vitamins and minerals like phosphorus, vitamin B12, niacin, and vitamin B6 are abundant in cod fillets. These important vitamins and minerals will help your immune system, your eyesight, and your energy levels. In addition, cod contains omega-3 fatty acids, which help maintain brain and joint health.

FAQs About Cod Fillets

Consumers are more conscious than ever about how their eating habits affect the environment. It's important to know if the fish you're buying is being caught responsibly. Atlantic cod is declining in population, and strict measures have been put in place to help restore the cod population. This is why Atlantic cod isn't as readily available in the supermarket.

Pacific cod, on the other hand, is not being overfished and is considered a sustainable option. It's one of the most well-managed fish populations in the world. You'll want to check the labels of your fish and inquire with your local fishmonger to ensure that you're getting Pacific cod or Atlantic cod that has been fished responsibly. While both Atlantic and Pacific cod can be fished responsibly, Pacific cod is the better option for those who want to eat fresh fish while protecting the environment.
