3 Reasons You Need Pacific Cod In Your Freezer

Posted On: May 15, 2016

A flavorful white fish, cod has been a staple ingredient in our test kitchen for years. Mild and versatile, we pair it regularly with sauces, salads and marinades. It’s proven to be a work-horse of a fish – we can rely on it for a quick, hearty lunch or slow it down and create a truly elegant appetizer or dinner.

Here are our Top 3 Reasons we love to have Wild Caught Cod on hand:

  1. It’s sustainable. Our dedication to sourcing sustainable fish has instead led us to Pacific cod, caught in the wild from Alaskan waters. Alaskan fisheries are some of the most regulated and well managed fisheries in the world- and we’re proud to work with them.Sustainable fishing means catching our seafood responsibly and with great thought and direct attention to the health of our environment and the people whose livelihood depend on the long term effects of said environment.
  1. It’s healthy. Rich in omega 3 fatty acids, B12 magnesium and potassium, cod is an excellent way to incorporate nutrient dense foods in your to diet. 4 oz is just 90 calories and clocks in at just 5 grams of fat. For those looking for low carb options, cod has 0 carbs and 20 grams of protein – enough to fuel you up and keep you going!

  2. It’s versatile.  You can fry it, poach it, bake it and braise it!
