Grenadier fish?

An unfamiliar fish appeared at my local big chain market. Called "grenadier." It looked somewhat like whole fillets of immature and emaciated cod. I asked the meat/seafood guy what it was. All he knew is that, it's a mild, white, firmly flaky fish, with the purported taste of ling cod. I asked if it was US origin - yes. I remarked that it appears he receives it frozen - yes. Might as well test 'em. Canola, salt & pepper.

Odd fish. Long, thin fillets, maybe ten inches from tail to collar. Inexpensive. I wasn't all that impressed with how it cooked up...

Does anyone have info or experience with grenadier?

Thanks, Fiona! Interesting, handsome fish.

I purchased just two fillets, and one of the odd things that struck me was that they were processed/filleted inconsistently, sort of haphazardly or by folks inexperienced with knives. Definitely no reason now for me to try them again.

You're welcome, Spork! I had never heard of them, either.
