This fish is also called buffalo cod, but interestingly enough, is neither a ling fish nor a cod. It’s actually a greenling. Its meat has a blue-green tinge to it that turns a snowy white color once cooked. The White Lingcod Portion from France has a tender texter with large flakes, and has a pleasant, mild flavor.
Because of its mild taste, the White Lingcod goes great with a variety of flavors. Use it for fancier fish and chips, or grill it and serve with some sun-dried tomatoes. you can also use it for fish tacos. Pair with Muscadet or Champagne.
The lingcod is a fish with a slight identity crisis. It is neither a cod nor a ling fish, but a Pacific greenling. It’s surmised that its name came from early settlers who saw its similarity to the European ling but also acknowledged its white flaky meat that is similar to cod. In the early 1900s, it was referred to as “cultus cod.” Cultus means “of little worth” in Chinook, a pidgin trade language from the North American Pacific Northwest.
