Pollock is a very common white fish caught all around UK waters and sold in most supermarkets as ‘white fish fillets’. Some might look down upon it for not being hugely flavoursome, but others might call it versatile – it does really well in fishcakes and curries, and it’s a perfect choice for getting picky kids to get their omega 3s due to its mild taste. Adding great texture to fish pies, and good for bulking out chowders, pollock is not to be scoffed at. However, freshly caught, smothered in butter, and cooked over barbecue coals, no one will turn their nose up to a fresh fillet of pollock.
Fresh fish is best eaten straight away, or within 3 days. Store in your refrigerator and pack with ice if possible. To freeze; place the fish straight in the freezer upon delivery and aim to consume within 3 months. TIP: Write the date on the packaging before freezing. Do not re-freeze your fish after defrosting.
