I’m a big fish and chips fan in our house but my husband is definitely not into fish and refuses to eat it so I usually only have it when he’s not home but I always enjoy it. Today I’m reviewing the Costco AquaStar Smart Seafood Lemon & Cracked Pepper Wild Cod.


The fish itself was great, the cod was moist, light, flaky and flavorful. The breading was nice and crisp although there was quite a thick coating of breading and it was definitely a little greasy, not soggy though. There’s a strong lemon flavor with a little bit of kick from the cracker pepper. I found that the cod was flavorful enough that it didn’t require extra sauce or vinegar and it also wasn’t “fishy” tasting.

There’s 11-15 fillets in the box. The regular price for the cod is $18.99 Canadian but I was able to get it on sale for four dollars off.


A convenient, easy dinner. All you do is bake the cod in the oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 18-22 minutes. The cod needs to be kept frozen and you can find it in the freezer section at Costco. You can pair this with potatoes, rice or a salad.

One fillet is 200 calories, nine grams of fat, 21 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, three grams of sugar, 10 grams of protein and 460 mg of sodium. Definitely not the healthiest fish option available. The cod contains wheat and soy ingredients.

Despite the heavy breaded coating and strong lemon flavor I actually enjoyed the AquaStar Smart Seafood Lemon & Cracked Pepper Wild Cod. I personally don’t mind lots of breading and have been known to douse my fish in fresh lemon anyways!
