Our wild pollock, line-caught by small inshore boats, is a fantastic sustainable alternative to its close relative the cod, with clean white flesh that stays firm and flakes beautifully when cooked just right. We’ve cleaned, prepared and portioned these two fillets – and left the skin on, because crispy fish skin is one of life’s great culinary joys. But if you prefer, the skin can be very easily removed after cooking – or before, by laying the raw fish skin-side down and running a sharp knife between flesh and skin.

Delivered in insulated packaging to keep cool on your doorstep. Minimum meat & fish order £15 to cover the cost of the packaging.

Cooking

These fillets are best pan-fried for perfectly crisp skin. It takes a hot pan and minimal intervention - resist the urge to poke and prod. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in the frying pan. Season the fish well on all sides. Fry them, skin-side down, for 3-4 mins, until the skin is golden. Gently flip and cook for 1 more min. Add a squeeze of lemon and remove from the heat. Let them sit in the pan for 2 mins to gently finish cooking. If the fillets are particularly thick or thin, you may need to add or subtract a minute of cooking time.

Alternatively, you can bake them in a hot oven for 10-12 mins at 200˚C/Gas 6, either directly on a roasting tray or wrapped in a foil parcel with some aromatic herbs and a knob of butter.

Storage

Keep in the fridge below 5˚C. Pre-frozen, not suitable for home freezing.

We guarantee that your fish order will have at least 5 days before its expiry date, including the day of your delivery.

About our fish

Our very limited range of seafood is based on what our research shows to be fishable in an ethical and sustainable way. We only support small-scale, non-industrial fishers local to us (mostly in Devon and Cornwall). The catch is always line-caught by day boats under 10 metres long, and we have full traceability from the boat to your door.

All catches are iced at sea, then expertly prepared, packed and blast frozen within 24 hours. Freezing the fish ensures it is fresh at the point of eating; fish from industrial-scale boats may have a much longer journey before it is frozen. Freezing the fish enables us to catch them when they are prevalent in our local seas and balance supply and demand (e.g. you can still get fish if the boats can’t get out in rough weather). Our blind taste tests found no impact from freezing on flavour or texture. For more info, please see our fish manifesto and FAQs.
