Curried Pacific Cod Kebabs Recipe

May 24, 2023

By Emma Duckworth, WSG Undergraduate Science Communications Fellow

We have curried Pacific cod kebabs for this week’s recipe in our Discover West Coast Seafood Recipe Series. Pacific cod is the second largest catch from commercial groundfish fisheries, and NOAA and the Pacific Fishery Management Council manage their stocks. Recent stock assessments have determined that Pacific cod populations are not overfished and that current management strategies are succeeding at sustainably harvesting these stocks. Read more about the status of Pacific Cod stocks and where they can be found here.

 Courtesy of Alaska Seafood, this recipe is a quick and delicious meal perfect for the summertime. As temperatures in the Pacific Northwest warm up, these kebabs are perfect for preparing and grilling in the nice weather.

  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • A few turns fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
