Recipes & Cooking
Cod is the traditional fish for Fish and Chips but it really offers so much more. Large cod has wonderful flakes with a soft texture, and the skin when browned is delicious. We recommend oven baking with a garlic and herb crust and serving with minted mashed potatoes.
Health & Nutrition
Cod is a low fat flaky white meat fish that is a good source of protein, phosphorus, niacin, and Vitamin B-12. A 100 g cooked portion of cod has less than 90 calories, one gram of fat, and 15 to 20 grams of protein. Cod is a good source of Omega 3 oils with 342 mg per 100 g of fish.

Stocks in Cornwall have been under pressure over recent years, and as such we source MSC Certified Cod from the Shetland Island's, to give the South West Fishery some time to recover. Read more
