Norwegian Skrei Cod Recipe

Skrei, a sustainable and seasonal species of cod, lives most of its life in the cold and clean waters of the Barents Sea, north of Norway and Russia. But every year, from January to April, hundreds of thousands of Skrei migrate back to their spawning grounds around the coasts of Norway – making the lean and tasty meat of the Skrei available to gourmets around the world.

The Skrei fishing industry is one of the most highly regulated and enforced in the world, making the species more abundant than it has been in the last 50 years in the Barents Sea. And during the past few years, this amazing seasonal fish has become available in select gourmet restaurants around the US.
