Definitions for "lingcod"
The flesh of a lean-fleshed fish caught off the U.S. Pacific coast.
A food fish (Ophiodon elongatus) of Northern Pacific waters related to greenlings.
Found on the North American Pacific coast, lingcod is not really a cod but a greenling. This fish won`t win any beauty contests, but its mildly sweet flavor and firm, lowfat texture makes up for its appearance. Lingcod ranges from 3 to 20 pounds and is available whole or as steaks or fillets. It can be prepared in almost any manner including baking, broiling, frying or grilling.
