The High Liner Brand at Costco
High Liner is a popular brand of frozen fish products, and they sell quite a few items at Costco. In addition to the Furikake Cod, Costco carries their miso glazed cod which is a letdown, but also the Tortilla Crusted Tilapia, which is very, very highly ranked in my Top 30 Frozen Foods at Costco article.
Sustainably Caught Seafood
One issue that I don’t think gets enough recognition is the sustainability of our oceans and seafood. Seafood is delicious, but we need to ensure that it is available for generations to come.
High Liner is committed to wild-caught legal fishing that minimizes overfishing and damage to habitat. You can find their full report here.
What is Furikake?
Furikake is a mixture of seaweed (nori), sesame seeds, salt and herbs and is primarily used in Japanese cuisine. It’s typically used as a topping on rice, fish, and vegetables.
I like to sprinkle some over salmon and rice, and it’s an excellent topping for poke bowls.
Costco Cost Comparison
How Much Does The Furikake Crusted Cod Cost?
The 2.2-pound box of High Liner’s Furikake Cod costs $19.89 at Costco, and each pound sells for $9.04. This is on the higher end for frozen breaded cod compared to some of Costco’s other options.
How Does The Furikake Crusted Cod Taste?
I cooked the furikake cod in the air fryer, and everything came out great. My air fryer instructions are included below.
The crust came out super crispy and crunchy; I couldn’t ask for anything better. The furikake seasoning was tasty and added some unique flavor.
My wife really liked the furikake cod and even called it one of her favorite of Costco’s frozen foods.
The breading binder was a little squishy, but not as bad as some of Costco’s other breaded frozen fish products.
It’s noticeable, but I can easily look past it, considering how much I enjoyed the rest of the fish.
The cod itself was cooked perfectly and was very moist and delicious. It’s excellent cod for a frozen fish product and cooks much better than High Liner’s Miso glazed cod because of the exterior breading.
This furikake cod is a Costco winner. It’s fantastic tasting and something that I will be adding to my Costco shopping list.
Costco Furikake Crusted Cod Cooking Instructions
High Liner lists only one method to cook the furikake cod, and that is to bake it in the oven. I have listed the cooking directions for both convection and conventional ovens, and I have also included my own personal air fryer instructions.
Arrange the rack in the center of the oven, preheat, and place frozen fillets on a shallow foil-lined baking pan.
- Bake at 425°F for 25-30 minutes.
- Let stand for 2 minutes before serving.
- Bake at 400°F for 20-25 minutes.
- Let stand for 2 minutes before enjoying.
Furikake Crusted Cod Air Fryer Instructions
I always like to cook frozen foods in the air fryer. The air fryer only takes a few minutes to preheat and cooks the fish in about 75% of the time. I highly recommend using an air fryer to save time and get a crispier crust on the cod.
- Preheat Air Fryer to 400°F
- Place Furikake Cod in a single layer in the air fryer
- Cook for 15-17 minutes.
- Let stand for 2 minutes before enjoying.
Furikake Crusted Cod Calorie Information
One serving of the furikake cod from Costco will be 4 ounces and contain 190 calories. The 190 calories come from 6 grams of fat, 17 grams of carbs, and 19 grams of protein. The full nutritional profile is below:
Total Fat: 6g
Saturated Fat: 1g
Trans Fat: 0g

For a frozen seafood product, this is a standard nutritional profile. The cod is low fat, which is great, but the carbs are slightly higher than I expected.
Not the best seafood nutritional profile, but still better than most other items in Costco’s frozen food aisle.
