There are plenty of fresh fish at Harbour Seafoods Stornoway but this week we’ve chosen Haddock and Whiting.

Whiting are a white fleshed sea fish, they are a small member of the cod family and have a very similar flavour. As whiting are less well known they are a more economical alternative to buy than cod and are more sustainable. Its flesh is light, firm, lean, sweet and delicate, best cooked quickly.

Haddock are a northern Atlantic fish and are also related to Cod yet taste distinctly different. Haddock have lean white flesh with a tender but firm texture and medium flake, they have a mildly sweet taste and are probably best known as a chip shop favourite.
