PSA: Cod is the addition to your dinner queue you’ve been looking for — and if you’re shaking your head and thinking I don’t know how to cook fish, I’m here to tell you it’s easy, fast, and satisfying. In other words, it’s everything you want from a weeknight dinner — especially if you know how to choose the right fish. While it’s easy and fast to cook fish, here are 15 easy cod recipes to make when you want a quick and satisfying meal.

What Kind of White Fish Should I Get?

While cod is probably the most popular (and recognizable) white fish, there are a number of varieties, such as bass, grouper, and tilapia, that cook relatively similarly. White fish have a flaky and firm texture and their mild flavor appeals to a wide range of flavors and palates. If you’re not sure what to get, don’t be afraid to ask the fishmonger questions. They’re there to help! A quick Q&A can enlighten you on the freshness and flavor of the fish in their case (and recommendations on which to buy).

Do I Want Whole Fish or Fillets?

While whole-cooked fish looks impressive and makes a good dinner party centerpiece, we recommend sticking to fillets for weeknight cooking. The fishmonger should be able to fillet any fish for you, and you gain little trying to do it yourself at home.

Is Frozen Fish an Option?

Frozen fillets (which you don’t always need to thaw before cooking) are an excellent option. They’re easy to store, taste just as good when cooked, thaw quickly, and are a great protein to have on hand for last-minute meals.
