What fish is similar to scrod?
What is scrod? Haddock, cod, pollack, and hake are all related and all caught off the New England coast but, for the most part, “scrod” is either haddock or cod. If both are fresh, properly prepared, and cooked without skin, it’s pretty difficult to tell the difference.
Is scrod a halibut?
Most of the authorities we surveyed agree: Scrod is a “catch of the day,” usually referring to cod, halibut, haddock, or pollock. Some went so far as to point out an acronym: Scrod means “Select Catch Received on the Day” unless the catch was halibut, and an “H” would be added.
Where do you catch scrod?
Scrod is common in many coastal New England and Atlantic Canadian fish markets and restaurants, although using the name ‘scrod’ without the species is in principle mislabeling.
