Fried Garlic Soy Wild Alaska Pollock
Here’s a great excuse to get out the deep fryer: crispy, battered and fried Alaskan Pollock tossed in a two-ingredient sauce. Make sure to use chili garlic sauce, not Sriracha in the dish…. it’s much thicker than sriracha…perfect for coating the fish. Serve the crispy battered Alaskan Pollock fillets with steamed rice and a simple cucumber salad.

Tasted great! Had to add a bit more liquid to get the batter to right consistency but it was crisp and delicious.

I do not fry or deep fry anything. Is there another way to cook this recipe it sounds delicious.

This was easy and excellent. I first patted dry the fish and coated with flour. I used lime seltzer because that’s all I had. Next time I will add paprika and cayenne and more salt. This was my first time frying fish and it’s a keeper! Thank you for posting.
