The key ingredient of the recipe is the type of fish – Alaska Pollock. It is a perfect option even if you have it frozen. Its taste is pretty neutral and you can have any side dish with fried Pollock. Besides, it has very few bones, which is a very good thing.

As I have already mentioned, the ingredients for breading are basic. You mix flour with your favorite type of dry herbs, freshly ground black pepper and salt. My top choices for herbs would be a mixture of basil, rosemary, thyme, and, of course, marjoram. Make sure that while you dip fish pieces in the flour mixture you cover the entire surface.

To have fish included at least once a week, you need to know a variety of recipes. Here are my top choices:

Ingredient for Pan-Fried Pollock:

Fried Pollock Ingredients

  • 2 frozen Alaska Pollock fishes;
  • 150 g all-purpose flour;
  • 150 ml oil for frying;
  • 1 tsp. dry herbs (of your choice);
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to your taste.

How to fry Pollock fish in flour:

  • I prefer to defrost Pollock slowly for the recipe. I simply take it out of the freezer a day before I am going to prepare the dish and leave in the fridge for a night. Before cutting fish, I get rid of all the fins. Then make a cut along the belly, scoop out the innards and thoroughly rinse the fish under cool running water. Finally, pet the fish dry with paper towels.

Clean Pollock

  • Cut fish into portions. Make sure to make them somewhat the same size, around 5 cm wide.

Cut into pieces

  • Mix flour with all the seasoning (salt, pepper, and herbs) to make a breading for frying fish.

Combine flour with seasoning

  • Dip every piece of Pollock in the mixture. Make sure that every side is evenly cowered with flour breading.

Dip every piece into the flour mixture

  • Heat oil in the skillet on the stove. Place all the pieces in such a way that there is space between them.

Heat oil in the skillet and add the pieces

  • Fry on each side until golden brown. Do not cover skillet with a lid as you won`t get a crispy crust.

Fry until golden brown

  • After frying let the pieces rest on a paper towel before serving to get rid of the excess oil. Enjoy your meal!

Enjoy!

Pan Fried Pollock Recipe

The key to a nice crispy crust while frying fish is to heat oil in the skillet before placing any fish there. Moreover, the size of portions has to be not too thick; around 5 centimeters is enough to get them cooked through until fish starts burning.

There is nothing difficult in frying Pollock. The fish is cooked through quickly; there is no way you can overcook it and do something that will affect its taste negatively. Simply follow the recipe to get perfectly fried Pollock pieces in flour breading.
