Ling are eel-like fish that can grow up to two metres in length. They can be identified by their mottled pink and orange skin and long, tapered bodies, and are found in depths up to 1,000 metres.
Very white, very firm, densely textured flesh that holds its shape well on cooking. Moist and succulent, it is ideal for poaching, and can also be enjoyed smoked.
