The Best Cod Recipes from Birds Eye

Cod is the classic white fish. It’s not just the traditional fish and chips, but also delicious as a flaky fillet with an array of accompaniments.

Cod is naturally low in fat while still containing lots of the essential nutrients that we love fish for: protein (one of the body’s main building blocks), selenium, iodine and vitamin B-12.  If you’re looking for a lean but filling food, are on a bit of a health kick or avoiding meat, then cod is ideal.

It’s also very versatile – tasty with delicate flavours of lemon and herbs, packs a punch with spices and garlic, or enjoyable simply on its own. Since it doesn’t have a strong “fishy” taste, cod is brilliant for introducing children to seafood; meaning Captain Birds Eye’s cod fish fingers have been the maker of many a fish fanatic.

Light cod fillets and grilled vegetables are a perfect pairing – this dish is healthy, yet bursting with flavour. We suggest courgette, red onion and peppers to go with our tomato and rosemary cod, but we’re pretty sure any favourite family veg will work wonders.

Battered Cod with Salad and Tartar Sauce

While we love the classic cod and chips combo, our battered cod fillets (made with 100% wild-caught, responsibly sourced fish) can still hold their own with a simple side salad. Add your favourite dressing, or have a go at your own homemade tartar sauce.
