In Recipes, Uncategorized by Tony DestefanoLeave a Comment

Now, we admit it: you don’t often see the words “Alaska” and “Italiano” mentioned in the same breath, no less in the very same recipe! But when a meal happens to be perfect, why worry about the origin of the recipe or the seafood, and why not just focus on how delicious it tastes?

Yep, today we’re here to talk about Alaska Pollock Italiano. When this Old Country cuisine dish meets fish from the frigid waters of the Alaskan Coast, it’s a match made in flavor heaven. And if you’ve already ordered your case of Zaycon Fresh‘s Wild Alaskan Pollock Fillets, then chances are you have everything else you need for this meal in your kitchen already!

This is a tasty, easy meal that can serve as a family dinner or can be served at your next dinner party. Scaling it up or down is easy, and once you’ve tried it a few times, feel free to play with the ingredients (try a Vodka Sauce, for example, for a creamy tangy twist).
