For a long period of time, cod has been a favorite ingredient of the East and West. It contains 17.5% protein with less than 1% fat. People who cannot stand the smell of fish will enjoy cod because it has less odor. It is typical for a cod to have a big mouth and head; therefore, one cod is usually enough to feed an entire family.
