What is cod fish?
Cod is a mild and flaky white fish that's usually prepared by frying, grilling, steaming, baking, and broiling, and is popular all around the world. It is most used in the iconic British food, known as (you guessed it!) fish and chips! We do love a good fish and chips, with mushy peas and tartar sauce here at Birds Eye.
What does cod taste like?
Unlike other fish species, cod is known for its mild, almost milky flavour, with Atlantic codon the sweeter side and Pacific codon the more savoury side. You can find out more about where your fish comes from, with our handy Captain’s Fish Finder so you can eat with peace of mind.
Is cod good for you?
This is a very interesting question and something we can answer. Cod is a great source of protein and a 100g serving contains around 19.5g of protein. Additionally, cod is an excellent source of nutrients, important vitamins and minerals, making it a mealtime staple. This includes the following:
•Vitamin D – keeps bones, muscles, and teeth healthy
•Potassium – helps to control the balance of fluids in the body and helps heart muscles work properly
•Omega 3 – an essential polyunsaturated acid found in animals and plants and an example of a good fat.
These are just a few reasons to include fish in your diet, but for a full breakdown, we’ve got the perfect read for you on the benefits of eating fish.
