Today we’re sharing what we love about Wild Alaska Pollock. We are “wild” for this flaky, versatile white fish with a fresh taste and affordable price that makes it one of the best bang-for-your-buck fishes to incorporate into your meal planning. Trust us, it will be one of your favorite seafood staples once you try these recipes!
Only Pollock caught in the icy waters of Alaska – the Bering Sea, Aleutian Islands, and Gulf of Alaska – can be labeled Wild Alaska Pollock. The cold water combined with the fact that the fish is processed “at-sea” (right on the fishing vessel) and then quick-frozen contributes to its quality and fresh taste. According to our friends at the Genuine Alaska Pollock Producers, Wild Alaska Pollock is one of the most well-managed wild-caught fisheries.
Wild Alaska Pollock has become popular with chefs (it was recently featured in Vogue!), but let’s talk about preparing it in your kitchen. Quick and easy preparations will make this fish a favorite, plus it is full of healthy nutrients – just one serving of Wild Alaska Pollock delivers more than half of your daily value of vitamin B12! This vitamin helps to keep the brain and nervous system functioning properly. Vitamin B12 is also important for a healthy metabolism and regulating red blood cells. In addition to vitamin B12, Wild Alaskan Pollock provides more than 100% of your daily value of powerful omega-3’s (essential fatty acids) and is rich in niacin, selenium, phosphorus, and magnesium.
Tasty, wallet-friendly and a nutrition winner – that’s a lot to be wild about!
