Find out more about julienne

Evolving in the depths of the North-East Atlantic, from the north of Norway to Portugal, and the North-West Atlantic, from Iceland to the eastern side of Greenland, the Julienne is often, and wrongly, confused with blue ling (molva dypterygia).

Commercially, only two gadiform species can be sold under the “Julian” designation: the common ling (molva molva) and the Spanish ling (molva macrophthalma), present in the Mediterranean. Not very fatty and very digestible, this fish is appreciated for its white flesh, slightly pearly, firm and light, with a delicate flavor.
