Wild-caught Alaskan Pollock

At Le Pichet and Café Presse, we love featuring lesser known, little fishes that are both sustainable and good for you. Pollock is one of these, a fish that never really gets the respect it deserves. A smaller cousin of Alaskan true cod, pollock in the past was often considered too small for filets and therefore ended up as processed fish sticks or surimi. Which is a shame because it is not only very tasty, with characteristics much like true cod, but it is also very environmentally friendly. Alaskan wild caught pollock is one of the most abundant wild seafood species in the world, it’s harvest is certified sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council and rated “Good” by the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch.

Now on the menu at Cafe Presse and featured at both Le Pichet and Café Presse during Wild-caught Alaskan Pollock week, February 28 to March 8, 2020.
