You can dress this fish fillet up or down, churning out a fancy dinner party meal or a simple, tasty weeknight dinner.
Is Pollock as Healthy as Salmon?
Like salmon, pollock is a rich source of lean protein that doesn’t have much saturated fat and has a mild flavor. Saturated fats raise your bad cholesterol. So, you want to avoid this where you can.
With plenty of protein and low fat levels, this fish is similar to salmon in terms of health. Pollock filets are also usually cheaper than salmon or cod, so it’s great for saving money.
Pollock is a great fish to eat! It’s filling and healthy, but beyond that, it tastes great. You can use it in many different ways. It’s even a little more versatile than salmon.
Thanks to how affordable it is, Alaskan pollock fillets are a great fish to use for family weeknight dinners.
Today, we’re focusing on the easiest pollock recipes. These simple pollock recipes will get you through the week without too much fuss. Ready? Let’s go!
In Puerto Rico, this delicious pollock recipe is typically eaten during Lent. After all, that’s where its name comes from. ‘Caldo Santo’ means ‘Holy Broth,’ and it lives up to its name.
This takes a little while to make, so this is ideal for enjoying on the weekend.
Paired with tartar sauce and a bit of kick from the black pepper, this easy recipe will disappear in seconds.

These aren’t your typical fried fish fillets. Every bite is generously seasoned with Puerto Rican herbs and spices to lend the batter a fantastic kick with an herby flavor.
If you’re short on time, you can prepare the batter up to a day in advance. Just keep it in the fridge to ensure the batter has the right texture.
You can serve this flavorful fish with any of your favorite side dish recipes. I highly recommend a serving of tender-crisp garlic green beans to contrast the flaky texture of the salty cheddar herb crust!

This pollock dish would be a great Sunday dinner idea.
The key is treating each vegetable on the plate the best way. Drizzle your tomatoes with olive oil—Char your corn. Mix your beans with some cilantro and lime. Finally, crown it all in the avocado dressing!
This super-fast grilled fish doesn’t need much to make it delicious. A dash of some different herbs with a generous squeeze of lemon is enough to lift it to ‘tasty weeknight dinner’ status.
Don’t spend ages standing over a hot deep fryer! Instead, whip out your air fryer to create some fantastic air-fried pollock. The beer batter pairs beautifully with this flaky white fish.
For our next dish, we’re touching down in Mexico. These fish tacos taste as vibrant as they look, with plenty of different flavors to keep your tastebuds dancing. Best of all, you can use your Instant Pot!
In just thirty minutes, enjoy restaurant-quality fish tacos. The fresh salsa and cilantro make each bite so fresh and delicious. This is the perfect recipe for a summer afternoon with friends.
What I love about this dish is how you can make it your own. Twist and tweak the spice balance to create something unique.
The Chinese five spice is the hero, but you can play with other flavors to tip the scales.
This dish doesn’t taste good for you; it’s too delicious. But the truth is, the light dressing packs the dish with flavor so that you can add any number of healthy ingredients.
