Cod is the common name for the demersal fish genus Gadus, belonging to the family Gadidae. Cod is also used as part of the common name for a number of other fish species, and some species suggested to belong to genus Gadus are not called cod (the Alaska pollock).
The two most common species of cod are the Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua), which lives in the colder waters and deeper sea regions throughout the North Atlantic, and the Pacific cod (Gadus macrocephalus), found in both eastern and western regions of the northern Pacific. Gadus morhua was named by Linnaeus in 1758. (However, G. morhua callarias, a low-salinity, nonmigratory race restricted to parts of the Baltic, was originally described as Gadus callarias by Linnaeus.)
Cod is popular as a food with a mild flavour and a dense, flaky, white flesh. Cod livers are processed to make cod liver oil, an important source of vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, and omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA). Young Atlantic cod or haddock prepared in strips for cooking is called scrod. In the United Kingdom, Atlantic cod is one of the most common ingredients in fish and chips, along with haddock and plaice.
Fish specific to the waters of Goa, India, would be preferred, but as this isn't always possible (including where I live), any decent white fish of a bit of thickness would work in this curry. I used cod.
The recipe I followed left open the choice of vegetables - I went with okra, as I...
Bakalar na bijelo

Surf with a touch of turf. Spicy and fruity tasting, n'duja has a wonderful affinity with seafood and a little goes a long way. Kala chana (black or brown chickpeas) add a lovely earthy note to this dish. If you want to make this for two people (as I did) halve the quantities of cod, butter and...
There’s hardly anything fish goes better with than the tangy taste of citrus fruit. If you are lucky enough to have a lemon plant in your garden or to find lemons with their leaves attached, do not remove them, quite the contrary, use them as we did. They release a delicate taste on food – and...

Im very new to cooking but really trying to throw myself into it. I recently bought some cod which I shallow fried in butter before baking it in the oven. It turned out pretty well but my whole apartment smelled really badly of fish.

Tried out a couple of new ideas that were floating around in my head. First was a sort of accident, I'd had the idea of creating a peanut sauce to pour over the portion of cod loin but I crushed far too much peanut. So instead I laid the peanut on the bottom of the dish and put the cod on top...
