Salties Haddock has a mild sweet taste with pearlescent white flesh. Its texture is firm yet tender after cooking. Haddock is more tender than Cod, yet has a finer flake, and is slightly sweeter to the taste. Some find the flavour to be closer to Halibut than to Cod.
We highly recommend Deep drying, smoking, pan frying, poaching, baking, BBQing, steaming, Sautéing, and broiling our delicious Haddock.
The Availability of our Haddock is steady all throughout the year with spike periods in Jan/Feb/Mar and Aug/Sept/Oct/Nov/Dec.
Haddock is caught all around Iceland, with the exceptionally large areas concentrated on the Western coast.
Legend goes that the black line that runs down the sides of the Haddock was caused by the devil attempting to grab one from the ocean. When it was taken it was able to escape but the devil’s nails scraped and ‘burned’ a line into its sides. Now all Haddocks carry this characteristic.
Common size of Haddock is between 55 and 65 cm and 30 lbs. The largest individual caught in Icelandic waters measured 109 cm and was 17 years old.
Haddock likes eating bottom dwellers such as smaller fish and sand eels, as well as Amphipods and Capelin.
