Processing Cod

Wild and sustainably caught. Shiny, white and perfectly flaked. The cod that’s been frozen at sea is one of the finest seafood products there is. You simply can’t get it fresher without braving the cold, clear waters of the sea yourself. Modern vessels can freeze fish to a staggering -20 degrees celsius while still at sea. This accelerated freezing process keeps the flavour and nutritional advantages of a fresh fish. Just as soon as it’s harvested from the sea, our cod is filleted then frozen. When cod blocks are frozen fresh at sea, they are normally transferred to the cold storage before dispatch to port for long-term storage.

Benefits Of Frozen Cod

Due to its flaky, white flesh and moderate flavour, cod is a common, widely harvested fish. It belongs, along with both haddock and pollock, to the same family of Gadidae. The white, lightly flavoured cod meat is abundant all year round and is a good alternative for animal protein with its flexibility making it readily suitable to all cooking methods. These fish contain enough nutrients and vitamins. Vitamin B3, B6 and B12 are all included. Also, it provides omega 3 fatty acids, protein, and vitamin D. Omega 3 fatty acids and selenium have anti-inflammatory agents that tend to minimise inflammation occurring in rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, asthma attacks, and migraines. It is also beneficial for those with diabetic heart problems or atherosclerosis. Regular consumption of seafood decreases the risk of heart failure and cardiovascular diseases.

Frozen Cod Recipe

FAQs

Is frozen cod just as good as fresh?
If the fish is frozen on board the fishing vessel and defrosted properly, its quality can be just as good as a freshly caught fish.
How to defrost frozen cod quickly?
Just make sure to never defrost fish at room temperature or dipping it in hot water as bacteria can multiply rapidly. A quick and common way of thawing fish is using cold water. The fish must be stored in a sealed bag, preserving the flavour, then submerged in cold water until it is defrosted. Defrosting fish using the microwave is by far the quickest way, but sometimes difficult to achieve an even thaw, so you should be extra careful.
Does refrigerated cod taste better than the frozen variety?
You are not alone in thinking this. Many consumers assumed that chilled cod has a higher quality than frozen cod.
Freezing fish at sea is the best method to lock the freshness. If the frozen cod is stored properly at -30°C, it would still taste fresh even after 12 months.
Does frozen cod have a different texture?
The texture will remain as good as the fresh cod if it is stored correctly. Cod can be quickly frozen and defrosted without affecting the flavour and texture. When the cod is slowly frozen, large crystals will form and may damage its flesh. Prolonged soaking and excessive glazing may also affect the fish’s texture.
Will frozen cod smell upon cooking?
The frozen cod with good quality will not give off a strong odour.
