In our house only one person eats fish. That’s me! I don’t mind fish, it’s not my absolute favorite thing but I recognize the health benefits and think it tastes alright. Today I’m reviewing the Costco High Liner Miso Glazed Cod. This can be found in the freezer section of Costco beside the other fish and fish sticks. The product number is 1338053.

Taste

I actually really enjoyed the miso glazed cod! It’s very lightly soy flavored, it’s not overly salty and has the slightest hint of sweetness. The fish itself is light, flaky and moist. This miso glazed cod is extremely versatile! It can be used in a salad or as a main protein with a side of rice or potatoes and vegetables. It’s great for either lunch or dinner. One thing I wasn’t sure about was when I cooked the cod I got a little layer of white film on top of the cod so I simply dabbed that with a paper towel.

Cost

I paid $19.99 for the 907 gram box miso glazed cod. There’s seven pieces of cod in my box all of various sizes, some bigger than others.

Convenience

These are really easy to bake in the oven! I just pop them on a baking tray with foil on it and bake them at 400 Fahrenheit for 22 mins. You can have these for lunch or dinner. The best before date is over a year from the date we purchased the cod.

Nutrition

One fillet is 130 calories, one gram of fat, three grams of sugar, 25 grams of protein, 55 mg of cholesterol and 450 mg of sodium. These are low calorie, low fat and high protein. Unfortunately the third ingredient is sugar so for those trying to watch their sugar intake they might pass these up.

I’m enjoying my box of cod and would probably buy them again! If you’re a cod fan I think you’d enjoy these.

  1. Thanks for your thoughtful comment Jack! I will definitely try the Jane’s Tavern Battered Cod! I finished my box of this cod and noticed the white film each time I cooked it but chose to ignore it as it tasted fine! Thank you for following my blog. Merry Christmas to you and your family! Stay healthy.

    • The white film is referred to as “white vellum”. It is a membrane found immediately under the skin layer. It is a little unsightly but harmless. It occurs when the skinning machines are set a little too shallow to increase fish yield $$$.

  2. I haven’t been following you for very long, so it’s possible I might have missed your review of the Jane’s Tavern Battered Cod. I love fish products and the Jane’s is probably my favourite. The one you describe here is a healthier choice, with about half the calories of the Battered Cod. I decided to comment because the first time I baked the Jane’s product, I also saw the white film on the outside of the fish. However, after verifying the cooking time and checking the internal temperature of the fish with a food thermometer, I convinced myself it was not anything dangerous. Since that time, I almost always see the film – except when I overcook, and I find it either burns away or gets embedded into the surface as a darker crust. So, providing you’re not undercooking, I wouldn’t worry about that white film.

  3. I would like to comment on the High Liner Miso Glazed Cod – a frozen product #1338053. I discovered this product in our Costco store. This Miso Glazed Cod is a delicious product and the best-tasting frozen cod we have tasted. To our dismay, Costco no longer carries this frozen cod product. Our Costco Admin. office told us that they are not carrying it any longer. We are so disappointed and hope Costco will reconsider carrying this product. Thank you

  4. Bought this at Costco because they didn’t have plain cod fillets….terrible product when cooked in the oven….mushy, processed tasting and had a little ‘stink’ to it even while frozen….I won’t eat another piece….its going back to the store.

  5. I tried to cook it in a small waterless pan with mixed veggie on top for myself. Essentially steaming it since I don’t want to wait for the oven. I used the same 18 mins and it came out a bit overcook but still delicious. I will try a couple minutes less next time to see how it goes.
