Tips on Buying Cod
A mild fish, cod is popular for its versatility. If you’ve shied away from seafood in the past, but are open to trying again, cod is a pretty friendly fish to start with. Read: It doesn’t have that super strong Eau-de-fish.
When you’re at the store, make sure there are no drying or brown spots. As with any type of fish you select, there should not be a strong odor.
Cod is actually a blanket term for a number of white, meaty and firm fish varieties. Scrod, whitefish, Alaska cod, true cod, black cod, rockfish, Alaskan pollock and white cod are just a few of the cod varieties swimming around out there.
If you’re concerned about sustainability, try to avoid Atlantic cod, which has become overfished.
Alternatives to Cod
If you’re not feeling the cod or want to switch it up, there are other fish you could pair with sweet potatoes. Here are some suggestions:
- Striped Bass
- Mahi Mahi
- 1–1.5 lb (450 – 680 g) cod filets, defrosted (make sure to remove bones)
- 4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and grated (approx. 700–900 g)
- 1/4 cup (60 ml) coconut oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- Small handful fresh parsley, chopped

- Add in the flaked cod, parsley and olives, and season with salt to taste.
