Most places around here use Pacific red snapper, which is actually rock cod, and will upgrade you to halibut for an additional cost.

While cod is traditional, and you were probably served pollack (which is cod-related), I would recommend you try an ocean perch (rose fish). It is just great for deep frying in batter.

We usually get hake or cod and sometimes butter fish here. If they don't specify it's usually hake.

I've heard Australia is very similar to SA as far as food and weather is concerned. The more I read your posts, the more I notice how true it is!
A lot of my friends have moved there, they say it's just like home!

Isn't butterfish too greasy after deep-frying? Sounds like deep-frying bacon ;)

Hm, I wonder if it has different name here in the states, last time i saw that fish back in my soviet days. Need to google it, see what it is called here. Thanks for reminder.
As far as original question. I would use the mildest fish possible and by using seasoning you like would get the taste you like.
