Part of the Cod family, but doesn’t grow as large, and is not usually available beyond 3.5kg, so not good for steaks or suprêmes. The flesh is not as white as Cod, and is not as flaky, but has a slightly sweeter taste, which is why Haddock is the best whitefish for smoking. Haddock is probably more loved North of the border – order fish and chips in Scotland and it’s battered skinless Haddock you’ll get – not the skin on Cod you get South of the border. Cook and use the same recipes as for Cod.
