NZ Blue Cod Fillet 140g +/- WILD CAUGHT - FROZEN AT SEA
Blue Cod belong to the Pinguipedidae family and are endemic to New Zealand. The fish are a demersal species, and are found predominantly in rocky coastal areas. General appearance is grey/blue, with a greenish sheen. Blue Cod tend to gravitate towards colder waters and therefore are found in abundance further south. They are the undoubted ‘crowd favourite’ for the South Island’s fish-loving population.
Our suppliers vessels fish in the northern waters, so blue cod are not available to their boats in large volumes, but they are caught sporadically as a bycatch of the Snapper fishery. They are definitely a fish to look out for and make the most of when the boats are landing them (perfect for a weekend menu special).
Blue Cod has a medium textured light pink flesh, which whitens nicely on cooking with a sweet ocean flavour profile.
