So what is the main difference when it comes to cooking?
Atlantic Cod contains 2% – 3% of fat thus making it a leaner fish with less oil as compared to other Cod’s where their fat content can reach 20%. Over cooking an Atlantic Cod will result in a flaky and dry fish. Thus we recommend using shorter cooking time to bring out the best qualities of an Atlantic Cod.
