Pollock is a firmer textured flaky fish that isn't very oily. If you like cod or halibut you'll like pollock. It flakes apart in larger chunks and is a substantial and tasty fish.
Here's what you'll need to make this easy recipe with fresh pollock filets.
- Alaskan Pollock Fillets
- Olive Oil
- Sea Salt
- Garlic Powder
- Italian Seasoning (or Italian Herb Blend)
- Onion Powder
- Ground Black Pepper
- Panko Breadcrumbs
- Parmesan Cheese
See the recipe card for quantities.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the pollock fish fillets in a single layer on an aluminum foil or parchment lined baking tray or greased baking dish. Pat dry with paper towels.
Brush the olive oil over the top and sides of the fillets.
In a small bowl, mix the sea salt, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, onion powder, and ground black pepper. Sprinkle half the mixture of the fillets.
In a medium bowl, mix together the panko breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, and the remaining spices.
Sprinkle the panko mixture over the pollock fillets and gently press down to make sure the breadcrumbs and cheese are sticking to the fish.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until fish reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F on an instant read thermometer.
If you’d like the panko topping to be crispier, broil the fish on high for 1 minute.
Serve with slices of lemon or a sprinkle of lemon juice or lemon zest and chopped herbs like fresh parsley or dill. Feel free to serve with a dip, fresh salsa, or a dollop of sour cream.
