King whiting, also known as silver hake, have softer flesh and are less flaky than other white fish such as cod, haddock, and pollock. King whiting tastes mild and slightly sweet. The raw flesh is white to off-white, with a coarse, watery appearance; when cooked it ranges from pure white to off-white.
King whiting can be used as a substitute in many dishes calling for pollock or cod. Silver hake, which is firmer in texture than many other hakes, is popular as corned hake in New England.
