"Haddock are a northern Atlantic fish which are related to Cod yet are distinctly different. They have a mildly sweet taste with lean white flesh and medium flakes with a texture which is firm yet tender after cooking.

In northern Europe Haddock is revered for fish & chips, as well as for a famous cold-smoked preparation called Finnan Haddie which was first served in Scotland around 1800 and become popular in London around 1830-1840."
