    Cod is excellent and my favorite for frying.  Unless, of course, you have an overabundance of halibut.  Not likely to happen outside of Alaska!

    I agree with the Chef. Cod is my go to also, It's a think flake fish and gives a nice meaty feel when it fried.

    My favorite batter fried fish are either cod or haddock!     We had batter fried cod for our fish tacos the other night...............a favorite meal.  It was part of grandson's birthday dinner request.

    The North Atlantic cod have been way over fished by the huge factory operations and are in severe depletion. I much prefer this variety. You can still find Alaskan or Pacific cod around for less money and that is probably what you're seeing. Haddock is also a great frying fish.

    The frozen cheap cod that you're seeing is most certainly from China and I wouldn't give you 2 cents for it.  Nasty stuff.  Alaskan cod is just as expensive as Atlantic cod which around here goes for about $12.99/lb., sometimes more.

    My first choice balancing price and taste would have been catfish and then mullet (my favorite).

    We use Alaskan cod in the Restaurant with much success! Make sure to store thawed cod in a perforated pan to get rid of excess water. Flour first, shake off excess then batter. Fry at 340 degrees for around 4-5 minutes. Perfect every time. Make sure to suspend the fish in the oil for a few seconds to avoid sticking to each other and the baskets.

    I have eaten in just about every place that serves Fish/Chips from San Diego all the way to Long Beach but the best place (other then a place in Washington State where I used to live) I have found is Red Robin.
    LARGE (4 pieces) servings served with all ya can eat cottage fries (best dipped in Buffalo wing spicy sauce)
    The next best place was at the Queen Mary in LB. The taste was simply beyond this world but the helpings were small!
     
    Red Robin.....................

    Astoria, Oregon? I had a some memorable albacore fish and chips at this little place a couple of years ago. It's not beer battered and I much prefer it that way.

    Between February 27 and March 16, we have 4 birthdays in our house and 2 for  family members who live in Syracuse.  I call it "birthday dinner request time".  My daughter calls it  "going broke time".  I am certainly sick of doing all these birthday dinners!" />

    Just down the road in Seaside:



     
    If you go over the bridge from Astoria you get to meet Chefbuba, who has some of the best food around.

    I stand corrected...however, this "beer batter" was far lighter and less greasy than typical ones. I don't like the beer batters that have that "glossy sheen". In fact, the pics on the website illustrate exactly what I'm talking about. How did you like your fish?

    All this being said, a good crispy Fish & Chips with a beautiful white flake moist fish,is nothing without a great Tartar sauce. If people aren't bragging about your tartar sauce, your missing the boat.

    Neither.   Good fried fish stands on its own. 
    LOL!  Just goes to show that people have different taste preferences. 
    I'm a bit of a purist on many foods.  No mayo on burgers. No steak sauce on steaks....etc.

    Michael, at least you married smart!!! when I made tartar in my Cafe, people would come up and order " I would like three tartar and could I have an extra fish with that"  I went to a place in Mexico once, the fish was good, the tartar sucked. I brought my own next time.........Lums used to always have Malt Vinegar on the tables.

    What? No mushy peas? I actually like all the condiments...touch of malt, tartar, lemon. In England they salt and toss the malt vinegar on upon serving.

    I think my place was called Captain's Table or Cafe or something like that.  Right down from a smokehouse and looking over the Columbia River.

    Pancho.. I have been there several times, first time with deep fried tuna is a bit different, much fire and drier than cod or halibut, but it's something different for lunch when I'm in Astoria.

    Yeah, I agree about the texture of the tuna...denser and drier. My favorite for that type of preparation are halibut cheeks. I'm sure you've sampled those.
