How to cook lingcod

Like most white fish, lingcod is mild and easy to prepare in many different ways. It holds up well in marinades, tastes amazing grilled, and is easy to bake or broil to perfection. It's a great addition to salads, soups, stews, and pastas, especially if you're using a leftover lingcod fillet from the previous night's meal. As with most other white fish, lingcod is excellent at absorbing the flavors of each herb, spice, sauce, or rub you use, and it will retain those flavors even after a night in the fridge. Just like other seafood, lingcod is known for its host of health benefits and is an excellent choice for adding more seafood and lean protein to your diet. Suitable for low carb, low calorie, and low fat diets, it's also a fine choice for diets with few to no restrictions. Versatility and taste are hallmarks of this tasty fish.

Why lingcod?

White fish in general is easy to work with, simple to prepare, and tastes great no matter what you do to it. It usually absorbs flavors very well since it's so mildly flavored itself. However, it's said that lingcod has a little more natural seafood flavor than other white fish, such as halibut. This is not to say that lingcod is overly ″fishy″, but you will get more of a rich fish flavor in this meat than you would a halibut steak or fillet. That said, it's still very mild and goes well with just about any flavor profile. Spicy, sweet, savory—you name it, lingcod will work great for you.
