Summer is a time for quick simple food but we don’t need to compromise on flavour to get that. Food that is easy to digest and speedy to prepare and that is also a little different. I often reach for tartare at home and in restaurants, be they made with meat or with fish. At home I more often make them with fish. Today, with wild Alaskan pollock (in partnership with Wild Alaska Seafood UK).
Pollock is from the cod family but it is less well known. It is a great choice for those who like milder white fish like cod, but want to try something different. Pollock pairs well with many other ingredients as it is so gentle itself. It loves spice (I thought about doing a curry pollock tartare with some gorgeous in season mango, homemade curry oil and curry leaves, I will definitely make this another day). You would have to work hard to find something that it doesn’t go with making it a very versatile ingredient.
