There are dozens, if not hundreds, of edible fish available in our waters. 75% of our fish consumption comes from four fish: salmon, cod, haddock and tuna. And most of the tuna we eat comes from a tin.
If you’re looking for an alternative, coley is one of our favourites and a fish we always recommend.
Also known as saithe, Boston blues, coalfish, Pollock (in the US) and sea salmon (in Germany), wild coley is an underrated fish. And with just 80 calories per 100g and a cost of £9.90 a kilo, fresh or frozen, our wild coley is a delicious and inexpensive alternative to cod and haddock.
Swap the haddock for coley in our recipe for crunchy baked haddock for a quick and nutritious evening meal. Or replace fish for chicken or beef on curry night – this recipe from Jamie Oliver for a coley korma is a crowd pleaser and pretty straightforward to make.
