Atlantic cod has a fresh and mild umami flavour with a slight sweetness to the firm, juicy meat. Thanks to the cod’s upbringing in the ice-cold and clean waters around Greenland, the meat is very white and the flavour fully developed. It flakes nicely when cooked and with its high protein and low fat it offers a healthy and nutritious meal.
The cod fillets are uniform in appearance in terms of both colour and shape. They are versatile in use either as whole fillets or cut into smaller portions ideal for buffets.
ServingThe Atlantic cod is popular across the world for its unique flavour and versatility in the kitchen. It is best cooked gently at low temperatures, to preserve the mild, natural flavours.
