Wild Alaskan Lingcod

Lingcod (nick-named “buckethead” for its enormous mouth) is celebrated for its rich yet mild flavor and smooth flesh and is often compared to halibut. It is extremely versatile to cook with and can be baked, broiled, fried, grilled, sauteed, steamed, smoked or made into fish and chips. When lingcod is dressed immediately on the water then vacuum-packed and flash frozen (just the one time) as it is with Alaska Select, it can be enjoyed as sushi, in which case it is known as "kinmutsu." For those who are new to lingcod, the blue-green tint of the meat is normal (though inconsistent) and is not an indication of quality. The color cooks out completely, leaving a mild-tasting, tender, medium-firm white piece of fish with large, moist flakes.
