Fresh cod is better than frozen sole (small fresh sole, usually sold at Ethnic stores, also is a good choice).
The best way to make sure that cod fish really is fresh, is to ask the sales person to let you smell the fish. If you smell anything else than salted water, chances are that it is not that fresh.
