Executive Chef at the New York restaurant Charley St, Dan has appeared on Good Morning America, The Food Network and has hosted the popular docu-series Surfing the Menu on Discovery Channel.

Wild Alaska Pollock is a delicious, flaky fish, as versatile as it is nutritious—you can enjoy it breaded, on a bun, or even as part of your favorite recipe. A low-calorie food, Wild Alaska Pollock is one of the healthiest natural foods in the world.
It’s a great source of protein and in the low-risk category for environmental toxins, such as mercury and pesticides. The most abundant and sustainable species on the planet, Wild Alaska Pollock brings endless possibilities to your plate.
Although it’s one of the most consumed seafood species in the U.S., Wild Alaska pollock has long lived in the shadow of its more recognizable cousin—the cod. Also known as Walleye Pollock, Pacific Pollock, or Pacific Tomcod, the Alaska Pollock is not to be confused with the Atlantic Pollock, a darker, oilier fish that is actually a different species.
Caught in the icy, cold waters off Alaska, Wild Alaska Pollock has a mild flavor and flaky texture that can be grilled, pan-fried, or deep-fried to your liking. It’s often used as a substitute for cod, but Wild Alaska Pollock is smaller and more delicate, and to many—even tastier.
