Lent is later this year than it normally is, but I decided to go ahead and post this Poached Pollack with Shrimp Sauce Recipe a little ahead of time. It has been a long time since I have had fished prepared in this manner and for some reason, it sounded really good for tonight’s supper; maybe because it’s kind of on the light side.
This is a simple recipe that doesn’t take long to cook, and requires very few ingredients. I served a baked potato on the side, along with broccoli for a vegetable, because the cheesy shrimp sauce is also very good served over the broccoli.
The next time you’re in the mood for fish or need a Friday recipe for Lent, give this Poached Pollock with Shrimp Sauce Recipe a try; it’s really good.
