Adding Healthy Fish to Your Diet
From buttery salmon to firm white fish fillets, how do you choose the right fish for your needs? You've come to the right place to answer that question! We know seafood, and we're happy to help.
Start With White Fish
White fish like cod are a great place to start experimenting with fish. The lighter color is appealing in a variety of dishes, and the mild flavor of whitefish makes it easy to try out new things without being overwhelmed by a strong or "fishy" flavor. Cod white fish is easy to cook and lends itself well to a wide range of herbs, spices, sauces, and cooking methods.
White fish has a lot of great qualities, so we'll keep it easy and focus on white cod fish in this article.
What to Look For
When buying white fish cod for the first time, it's a good idea to start with white fillet fish, meaning fish that's already been cleaned and cut into individual fillets. This makes it easier on you to just jump in and start cooking without having to learn a new skill, like scaling, cleaning, or slicing the fish. You can ask the fishmonger or seafood counter employees to fillet white fish for you, or you may select some whitefish fillets already in the case.
Go For Frozen
While it's helpful to know how to choose a fresh fish from the fishmonger, all the choices can be overwhelming! Add to that how quickly fresh fish can spoil and it makes it difficult to be sure you're getting the best quality. A great option for beginners and experienced chefs alike is to choose quality frozen white fish fillets from a reputable source. Be sure the fish is processed fresh, frozen quickly, and shipped to your door.
How to Cook White Fish
One of the best features of white fish fillet is the fact it cooks very quickly. That makes it much easier for people with busy lives to still have delicious, healthy fish in their diets. Here's a few ideas for white fish.
