    You mean to say that only cod and salmon are only available in your part of the globe?

    Having steamed fish in restaurants is pretty pricey and sometimes they over steam it. DIY is always the best! Agree?

    Wonder whether the Ling Cod is the white cod fish we have here. Is it oily and pricey?

    Yes, especially the 'round garoupa', a piece depending on size can come up to 8 to 10 rgt. As you say, like eating gold. My fishmoger says that fish fillet and whole fish are priced differently!

  14. Auntie,
    Ling Cod is a fish unique to the west coast of USA & Canada. Hence, the availability and reasonable price (USD5.50 per pound) in seattle. Its a white fish but not belonging to the cod family. However, it looks similar to a cod, hence the name.

  15. Cod fillet range from 14-16 euros per kg. Salmon (cutlet) range from 10 to 12 euros per kg
