Mate i catch pollock all the time and i love them ,and the way i like to eat them is get some ordinary porrage oats onto a plate dip the pollock into an eggwash then the porrage oats and fry them in a pan of butter and olive oil untill golden.I realise the porrage oats thing might sound crazy but my mate is a  chef and it was him told me to do it like that and believe me its delicious although at the time i thought he was yanking my chain.Mackeral are also lovely done in the oats too, gives it a nutty type of batter taste.One final point is i actually fooking hate porrage as a breakfast ,detest the stuff , but done with fish as described is a different story.Give it a rattle mate trust me you wont be disapointed.

I like Pollack, we get a lot off the wrecks down here...
Beer battered and fried not much different to cod,
Roll in flour, salt and pepper and fry in the pan with butter, parsley and dill
In the oven tinfoil with butter, salt pepper parsley etc
Cube it and use it in a fish pie
It's a decent alround white fish mate..

Pollock can be watery but I find it makes fantastic fish pie.

 

Poach  fish in milk ( I like to add chopped garlic, wild garlic at this time of year is out so use that instead)

Once fish is pretty much cooked through, drain the fishy milk and use it to make a cheese sauce. (PM me if you need a good CS recipe)
Shove fish + sauce in a casserole dish, add some veg (Anything really) peas, sweetcorn, spinach, few chunks of carrot or whatever you like.
Top with mashed potato and bake in oven until the top is brown, add a little grated cheese and fresh parsley and bingo. fit for a king.
