This was my dinner tonight. Roasted Cod Collar. I was breaking down a Casco Bay Cod from Maine,a beautiful 15 pounder, probably one of the nicest cod fish I have seen in a long time. Hats off to Browne Trading Co. , I just recently started to use them and don't know why I waited so long.
Everyone always talks about tuna collar, sword collar etc... but let me tell you that this cod collar was by far one of the best I have had in a long time. The meat was plentiful and by far more flavor that came from roasting it on the bone.
I'm going to pursue this I think, where do all the collars go? I mean at least here in the North East there are few restaurants that you cant find cod at. But for the most part everyone get fillets and not many people break them down themselves. Where are all the collars? They are going to make their way to my menu!!!
