The Long John Silver’s seafood restaurant chain in the United States has added hand-breaded Homestyle Buttermilk Cod to its summer menu.

It really is delightful,” said Peter Czizek, vice president of culinary innovation and quality assurance for the Louisville, Kentucky-headquartered QSR operator.

Long John Silver’s wild-caught Alaskan Cod is soured from the North Pacific Ocean, which is ranked as one of the best-managed and most sustainable fisheries in the world. Flash-frozen aboard fishing boats shortly after harvest, the GMO-free fish contains no antibiotics, hormones, additives, artificial colors or flavoring.

Meanwhile, Fish & Fries is available for a limited time at the bargain price of $1.99. The combo deal features one piece of breaded pollock.
