Do you love to eat Cod Fish? If yes, you are in for a treat! Let’s dive in and catch these recipes for your next cooking session. But for now, read more through this article about what is this fish specie and what it tastes like.

Cod is a solid, white fish that may be served in a variety of ways, including frying, grilling, steaming, baking, and broiling. It is popular in cuisines all over the globe. There are two types of cod: Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua), which lives in the chilly waters of the North Atlantic Ocean, and Pacific cod (Gadus macrocephalus), which lives along the Pacific Ocean shores of North America, Asia, and Russia.

Cod is distinguished by its mild, almost milky taste and crisp, flaky texture. You will never even notice that what you are eating is fish since it doesn't smell much like fish. Some connoisseurs argue that Atlantic fish tastes sweeter and more delicate than Pacific cod, which is harder and more flavorful. In general, the oiliest or fatty fish have the greatest taste, which may often be described as "fishy," but cod is relatively lean and won't have any of that.

Many fish, particularly bigger species such as tuna, swordfish, shark, and marlin, are known to contain harmful quantities of mercury. If you are concerned about your mercury exposure, cod is one of the finest fish to consume in terms of mercury levels.

Most commonly, Cod fish is used for recipes like the most popular in the U.S. which is the fish and chips. But there are many ways you can cook this raw food and turn it into amazing recipes. Check out more below.
