Other Word Forms of Scrod
Origin of Scrod
Possibly back-formation (influenced by cod) (codfish) from English dialectal (Cornwall) scrawed fish from scraw, scroal to prepare (young fish) by splitting, salting, partial drying, and broiling
From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition
Perhaps from an obsolete Dutch term schrood (“slice, shred"), from Middle Dutch schrode, schroode (in which case, it is ultimately cognate to shred). Compare East Frisian schrod (“small or worthless thing; shred").
