We are now in the middle of the celebrated Skrei (pronounced SKRAY) cod season. The word skrei is derived the Old Norse verbå skrida meaning "the wanderer."
Beginning in January millions of cod swim from the nutrient-rich Barents Sea to the northern coast of Norway. Their capture is governed by very strict rules about age and size. All skrei, to be labeled skrei, must be packaged within 12 hours of being caught. True skrei is firm, somewhat thicker than Alaskan cod, and tender, with an excellent flavor. It also is one of the most nutritious types of white fish. MSC Certified. Kosher.
