We’ve collected 10 of the best pollock recipes for you to try, and have also included some information about the flavor of pollock, and how it compares to codfish. 

Pollock vs Cod

Both cod and pollock are low-fat varieties of mild-flavored white fish.   Pollock is softer and more delicate than cod, and can easily fall apart if overcooked. If you’re making a fish chowder or stew, cod is the better choice because it holds its shape when cooked for longer periods of time. Pollock is often used as an imitation crab in some sushi and Japanese dishes. 

What Does Pollock Taste Like

Pollock has a delicate and mild flavor. It is low in fat, and has a slightly coarse-textured white flesh. It has a similar but milder flavor compared to cod or haddock.
