Description

Our cod steaks are taken from the best specimens available, providing a meaty portion of succulent white flesh with a portion of backbone that adds oomph to the taste.

Cod is a large fish – it can grow up to 1.8m long – that is far and away the No1 choice for fish and chips in the United Kingdom, but the soft flakes and mild flavour lend it huge versatility in the kitchen, whether steamed, poached, shallow fried or roasted in the oven. The key thing to avoid is overcooking – grilling is one method that is poorly suited to the delicate flesh, which also works well in croquettes, fish cakes, gratins, mousses and fish pie.

A close relative of haddock and pollack, cod has a powerful body and a large head. It thrives in the cold waters of the North Atlantic and North Sea. Female cod are immensely fertile, laying up to five million eggs. This roe is very popular in Scandinavian countries, either smoked or boiled and prepared with other ingredients.

Following decades of diminishing stocks through overfishing, North Sea cod has regained sustainable status from the Marine Conservation Society after a raft of measures were introduced to allow cod numbers to recover.

How We Package Your Fish

1. First we vacuum pack individual fish portions (if the fillets are small then we will pack them in pairs).
2. Each portion is then weighed and clearly labelled.
3. We add frozen chill packs, which contain non-toxic gel, to a polystyrene box.
4. We pack your order so the chill packs distribute the cold evenly throughout your fish and seafood, ensuring maximum freshness.
5. We seal the box with packing tape and hand it to our courier, who will deliver it to you within 24 hours (or 48 hours if you live in the Scottish Highlands).
