What Is It?

Coley is one of the cod family’s best value fish and is a perfect sustainable alternative for cod or haddock in several recipes. It has a characteristic coal-coloured skin that runs sidewards along the body with a broad white line and the abdomen shades into light silver.

The flesh of coley is reasonably cheap, sometimes dull, off-white, when raw, but lightens while cooking and with a nice flavour. As coley has good firm flakes, it is great for pies and is ideal with a white sauce and covered with potato crust or pastry.
Coley fillets are easy to cook, nutritious and low in carbs and fat.

Processing

Frozen coley is easily available. They are harvested in the North Atlantic ocean. Our coley fish are filleted, but there are also headless whole fish available. It is sometimes available in dried and smoked form. Filets need skinning or scaling whether the skin is left on before or after cooking, and pin-boning. It is a fantastic, affordable fish that can be cooked using batter or breadcrumbs for deep-frying or poached to be used in fish pies. Coley is also ideal for soups and stews.

Benefits

Coley, like many other forms of fish, is a perfect protein source, a nutrient you need for muscle mass building, proper digestive health, and energy production. Other minerals from frozen coley include selenium and vitamin B12. Selenium has antioxidant effects, which ensures your cells will be shielded from damages. For the production of DNA and red blood cells and the regulation of your nervous system, vitamin B12, which your body is unable to generate by itself, is necessary. Frozen coley is perfect for home-made fish fingers as well. Other than coley, the ingredients are as basic as plain flour, eggs, breadcrumbs, lemon, parsley, salt and pepper, mayonnaise, including gherkins and capers. Preparation time can be a little longer, i.e. 30 minutes to an hour, while the cooking time is 10 to 30 minutes. However, the final product is worth the time and effort. Coley is sustainable, healthy, and affordable. It’s cheaper than cod, but it’s still delicious. So doing it means you are making an eco-friendly choice of cooking.
