Buyer's guide

Ling is most often seen as fillets, but it is sometimes sold whole or cut into steaks. It’s available both fresh and frozen, as well as dried and salted.

Preparation

Usually available as fillets, ling requires its skin and pin bones removing either before or after cooking. In Ireland it’s popular salted and served with mashed potatoes. It also works well in fish pies, soups and stews.
