In our house we refer to cod as the king of fish, not because it has the best taste or is the most expensive. It's because if you cook cod properly you can do almost anything with it and it won't let you down. Deep fry, poach, batter, roast, pan fry, I've even got great results on a BBQ. In part it's this versatility that is leading to a continued depletion of cod stocks
Cod is a name given to a number of fish species, some of which have not been overfished. So it's actually a positive thing to use a non endangered alternative that does the same job but has sustainable populations.

"I appreciate your attempts to 'convert' traditional meat recipes into vegetarian alternatives but it kind of makes us veggies feel a bit like second class consumers of your information. I mean why not have a great pumpkin casserole recipe that could be converted for meat eaters. Sam"
