Skrei Cod and Weekend Specialties 2.19.15 February 18 2015 Posted in

If you've been reading closely over the past two years (we can hope right?!) you’re probably very familiar with Skrei Cod from Norway.  Skrei Cod are in full force off the coast of Norway right now and we should expect to see consistent supply over the next month. Skrei is a Norwegian cod that migrates from the Barents Sea to its spawning grounds off Norway's snow covered, mountainous North coast.  In order to be classified as Skrei, the cod have to be fully mature (typically 5+ years), and in pristine condition (i.e. no scratches, bruising or other injuries).  All of this means Skrei has a fresh, clean flavor with large, smooth white flakes and a firm texture.  It's cod at its finest!  To top it off, the Skrei fishery is MSC certified for sustainability. 

Now onto the good stuff …
