Let’s skip the formalities. You already know that fish is good for you, that it’s packed with proteins, minerals, vitamins and amino-3 fatty acids, that scientific research suggests it enhances your cardiovascular health and makes you smarter, and that the American Heart Society recommends eating at least 2 servings of fish per week. Pff, you’ve probably read that a thousand times. What you want to know is: how does it taste? And what are the tastiest fish out there for you to eat?
So, with that in mind, here’s a run-down of what we here at Gourmet Food Store believe to be the best tasting fish, with details on flavor, texture and the best cooking methods for each:Cod
Due to its white, delicate meat and mild flavor, cod is often called “the chicken of the sea,” and in many dishes it’s a delicious and versatile substitute for meat protein. Atlantic cod fillets tend to be firmer than Pacific cod fillets, though both practically fall apart into tender flakes of lean, white meat, melting in your mouth. Taste: mild, somewhat buttery Texture: delicate, flaky Preparation: Cod can cooked a number of different ways: seared, baked, poached, broiled, battered, the list goes on. Since it’s mild in taste, it contrasts well with striking, colorful ingredients such as lemon, mustard, herbs and olives, and can be used in anything from seafood soups and stews to salads and fish tacos, or of course, fish and chips.
