This fish is a small member of the cod family. The young fish grow rapidly in the rich Jersey waters and reach a length of 30cm and sexual maturity at the end of their first year. Pouting are only a relatively short lived species, living for only 6-8 years. Despite this, the fish are able to spawn several times, and this, coupled with their small size, explains their abundance. An extremely underrated fish and very sustainable.
Fillets are easily dipped in egg, bread crumbed and gently fried to produce a lovely dish with dips of your choice. Healthy and great for the environment
