Holiday Cooking Guide: Lemon & Parsley Pollock

In recent years pollock has been touted by the Marine Conversation Society as a sustainable alternative to cod. Sainsbury’s tried a marketing ploy designed to give it some gallic flare through renaming it ‘colin’ – the French word for hake.

At Ladram our anglers know it as pollock and they are often in ready supply off our pebbled beach.

So, if you are fortunate enough to land a pollock and are thinking ‘what comes next?’ this tasty recipe should help you out.
