The flesh of fresh cod is silky and practically melts in your mouth. Cod has a ‘sweet’ taste that you can just eat it on its own without seasoning, simply umami.

Steamed Cod Fish is another indulging recipe you can effortlessly recreate at home. This recipe is simple and absolutely delicious. Not only that, I can eat rice with just this awesome sauce alone. Steaming is a very healthy and easy way to prepare fish. Preparing a perfectly steamed fish just require a little knowledge. You will get a perfectly steamed fish with this timing:
Fillets 1 inch (2.5cm) and thicker: check at 10 minutes, add 2 minutes for every 1/2? (1.3cm) more thickness
Fillets less than 1 inch (2.5cm): check at 7 minutes
Super thin fillets: check at 5 minutes
Check to see if its done at the times indicated. Gently poke at the flesh in the middle with a chopstick or fork. If flesh flakes easily, then its done. If flesh sticks together still, then add 1-2 more minutes to cooking time. Also check to make sure you haven’t run out of steaming water.
