Cooking Instructions
16.5 lb. Alaska pollock fillet block
1. Simply place each unwrapped frozen block into a 4-inch full-size hotel pan and slack out
in the refrigerator overnight. If the block doesn’t quite fit down into the pan when frozen,
it will drop down when it has slacked out.
2. Cover the hotel pan with parchment paper and then seal the pan tightly with foil. Bake in
a pre-heated 425°F convection oven for 1 hour.
3. Remove the foil, reduce the oven temperature to 400°F, and bake for an additional 30
minutes, or until the internal temperature just reaches 165°F. Do not overcook.
4. Some natural liquid from the fillets may remain in the pan, which can be kept for
additional moisture, or poured off if desired.

Curry with Vegetables:

1.   Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the canola oil and the yellow curry paste and fry the curry paste for about 2 minutes. Whisk in the coconut milk. Add the yellow onions, carrots, and green beans. Simmer for 10 minutes, then add the red bell pepper and simmer for another 3 minutes. Stir in the lime juice and sugar.

2.   Pour the yellow curry with vegetables over the cooked Alaska pollock and break up until the sauce is evenly distributed while keeping the fish chunky. Hold hot at 135°F or higher.

Assembly:

1.   For each portion place a 1 cup scoop of steamed brown jasmine rice into a bowl. Top with 1 cup (7.5 oz. weight) of the Coconut Thai Curry Alaska Pollock.

2.   Sprinkle 1 Tbsp. fresh Thai basil over the curry.
