Lingcod — all year
While technically not cod, lingcod (a.k.a. the Pacific greenling) does taste a lot like cod. This buttery white fish has a medium-firm texture and mild flavor profile, so it'll easily take on the flavors of anything you cook it in. This versatile fish fries well for fish and chips, can be spiced up for a classic fish taco, or sautéed in a rich curry.
