Cod has a more mild, clean taste. Haddock is more flavorful and “fishy.” However, the difference between Cod and Haddock is more about shape and texture than taste. Cod fillets are thicker and firmer. They're great for grilling or searing because they don't overcook as easily.

What do Haddock look like?
