Icelandic Pollock Loin
Approximately 11 vacuum sealed 1.7oz. packs, 3-4 pieces per pack, 6-7oz. per piece (about18 lbs.)
A more affordable alternative to cod, Atlantic Pollock (pollachius virens) is a versatile, firm-fleshed, white fish with a sweet, mild flavor. The loin is the highest quality cut, thicker and denser than fillets. Atlantic Pollock, a different species than Alaska pollock, tastes similar to cod or haddock. Pollock is low in saturated fat and is an excellent source of protein, vitamin B12, phosphorus, and selenium. It is often used to make fish and chips.
Store frozen fish in your freezer until you’re ready to use it, then thaw only as much as you plan on cooking.
RECIPES & TIPS
Atlantic Pollock can be baked, broiled, deep-fried, sautéed, or steamed. Cook pollock to an internal temperature of 145°F. The fish should be opaque, moist and flake easily when tested with a fork.
