How to Cook Lingcod

We talked about halibut a couple of weeks ago, and today’s blog post is also going to be about fish. This time, we are looking at lingcod. Interestingly, lingcod are not actually cod – they are actually greenlings. Lingcod is a lean, white fleshed fish that has a fairly firm texture and mild flavour. So there is lots of room to get creative in trying different ways to prepare it, and it can be a nice option for people who are normally a little skeptical of fish or seafood!

Lingcod is a great source of protein, vitamins, minerals and healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Fish & seafood are an important part of the Mediterranean diet that has been well-studied and promoted for its heart healthy benefits. A general guideline is to include fish or seafood twice a week. Trying out a variety of different fish or seafood, and experimenting with different recipes is a great way to support our health! In terms of the health of our oceans and sustainability, lingcod is also a good choice. You can find out more from the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program that aims to help people make choices for seafood that have a lower impact on our environment.

So, let’s get to some recipes!
