A favorite in the Pacific Northwest for upscale fish and chips, lingcod can be prepared many ways. It works well on the grill, and large lingcod can be stuffed with vegetables and baked. Steaks and fillets are good baked with a topping such as a sun-dried tomato sauce. Steaks also may be steamed with herbs and spices. The density of the flesh requires a longer cooking time than that of other whitefish, but be careful not to overcook the lean meat.

The lingcod or ling cod, also known as the buffalo cod or cultus cod, is a fish of the greenling family Hexagrammidae.

Lingcod are found along the Pacific Northwest from Oregon to Alaska.  Divers can usually observe juveniles in the shallower eel grass bed while adults prefer rocky bottom areas. Their unique and fierce appearance makes them on of my favorite bottom fish to catch.  It’s a firm white meat good for fish and chips, grilled or just baked with lemon, butter, pepper and dill weed.
