Did you know that you can get frozen cod loin, in a box, freezer ready? Perfect for the family, and a superb product once defrosted.
Usually when we picture cod, we think of it in crispy golden batter with a portion of chunky ‘chippy’ chips, as we called them, growing up. The addition of mushy peas, though, is probably dependant on your geographical location (and gravy, it’s something that’s divided these fine British Isles since time began). Some prefer haddock, which we sell. Some prefer hake. Which we also sell. Plaice, I hear you ask? Only for the refined chip shops across the country, you scoff. Weeeell, we sell that too, if you want to give it a go!
But in it’s own right, cod is becoming increasingly popular in restaurants across the country. It’s meatiness means it’s versatile – we’ve had it with tomato ragu, with lemon and herbs, and as part of a stew, for example. It’s a sturdy fish as well, which means that it doesn’t fall apart if you’re pan-frying it – ideal if you’re just starting to expand your repertoire of culinary skills by cooking fish.
Here’s a nice cod recipe from Jamie Oliver, if you don’t fancy the in-house marketing/sales/website/cooking hobbyist’s suggestions:
