These Types Of Fish Are A Must For Any Fish Fry

Fish and chips are a beloved dish among seafood enthusiasts and regular customers at Costas Inn. It consists of fish and french fries and is enjoyed by people of all ages. If you need help deciding which types of fish to eat for your next fish dinner, we’ve got you covered. Below are some of our top fish selections for your next fish fry. 


Pollack is an underrated addition, as its fried counterpart often overshadows it. However, Pollack is a type of fish that belongs to the cod family, which means it is similar to cod. Pollack is a juicy and tender fish that possesses more flavor than cod.


Haddock is often used by many people when frying fish. Although haddock is more flaky than cod, it has more taste. Haddock has a sweeter taste than cod, which compliments the fish batter.


When preparing a fish fry, many people prefer cod as it is mild and tender. The right breading can make it a perfect complement to tartar sauce. If you like your fish with a bit of crunch, cod is the best option. It also pairs well with many seasonings and is our choice of fish at Costas Inn


Catfish is an excellent choice people often want for a fish fry because of its availability and meaty, flaky texture that holds up when fried. 


Tilapia is widely available and has a mild taste and flaky and moist texture. Many people prefer fried tilapia, resulting in a lovely golden crust.
