NHCS Newsletter: FALL WEEK 14: POLLOCK/LOBSTERS

Posted 12/11/2020 4:15pm by Andrea Tomlinson.

Eat Fresher Fish.  Support Our Local Fishing Industry.



 

Welcome to our Week 14 of 16 for our Fall Session of our Community Supported Fishery (CSF)! We have ONE groundfishing boat fishing in NH right now and it is the F/V Witchcraft, out of Rye. In order to continue our mission to support our NH fishermen, we are offering the only fish in town again this week!

This week the Catch of the Week is Atlantic Pollock and our Shellfish Shares are locally caught Lobster, 2-chix/share.

Important things to remember:

  • You can buy additional Pollock and Lobster next week, it's our last offering of lobster
  • Haddock is all pre-ordered, please do not do a self substitution of your Catch of the Week with haddock, it really messes things up
  • Shellfish is every other week and all Members are invited on the Friday before to purchase for the upcoming Shellfish week
  • All Membership questions should be directed to our Assistant Manager, Enrica Jossi at enrica@nhcommunityseafood.com or 603-988-4866

 CATCH OF THE WEEK-ATLANTIC POLLOCK

Atlantic Pollock is quickly becoming the new signature New England fish, tasting much like cod and haddock and very abundant. 

Atlantic Pollock is related to cod and haddock and sometimes referred to as "Green cod".  Our Pollock are found in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean and are most common on the western Scotian Shelf and in the Gulf of Maine. A different species of Atlantic Pollock, commonly known as saithe, is found in the Eastern Atlantic.

Atlantic Pollock differs from Cod in that they have a greenish hue and slightly darker flesh. Not to be confused with Alaskan Pollock, found in the Pacific Ocean and one of the most harvested fish in the world. Alaskan Pollock is often times found in frozen fish sticks and fish fillets and a main ingredient in seafood salad and many processed seafood products.

And according to the Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI), Atlantic Pollock is also one of the five Gulf of Maine fish, that you really can feel good about eating!

KNOW YOUR FISHERMEN

Our Fishermen for the week are Captain Lucas Raymond of the F/V Witchcraft, filling in for Captain Jay Driscoll, out of Rye, NH. Lucas, his brother Mitchell and greenhorn Justin Valentine are fishing this vessel this week!

Thanks to these hard working fishermen, the youngest in the area!

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

Our Atlantic Pollock has a white, firm flesh with a sweet and delicate flavor. It is low in saturated fat and a great source of B 12 vitamins! It is also very versatile and so easy to cook! 

Pollock is great in fish any blackened recipe (like above on the grill).Substitute it in any recipe that calls for cod or haddock. Click here for some great recipe ideas on our Pinterest Page.
 
All fish should be cooked according to this rule of thumb: 10 minutes per inch of thickness. Our pollock fillets are about a half to three quarters of an inch, so should be cooked for 5-8 minutes total.
