4 Alaska pollock fillets, 4 to 5 ounces each
2 cups milk
4 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup flour
2 cups grated cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese, divided
1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 cup fresh white bread crumbs
A few tiny sprigs of fresh rosemary, plus extra for garnish

Add water to a large pan and bring to a simmer. Rinse any ice glaze from the frozen Alaska pollock under cold water. Turn off the heat and gently add seafood to pan. Return heat to a simmer. Once simmering, cover the pan and cook 4 to 5 minutes for the frozen seafood or 2 minutes for the fresh or thawed fish. Turn off the heat and let the seafood rest for 5 minutes or until the seafood is opaque throughout and then drain.

Meanwhile, heat the broiler or oven to medium-high 450°F. Place four individual gratin dishes, or one large shallow baking dish, in the lower part of the oven to warm.

To make the sauce, put the milk, butter and flour into a nonstick saucepan. Heat, stirring constantly with a small whisk, until the sauce thickens. Remove from the heat and add half the cheese, stirring until melted. Add the mustard and season with salt and pepper.

Remove the Alaska pollock fillets from the poaching liquid and break into large chunks and place in the warm dishes. Pour the sauce over the fish. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and rosemary sprigs and add the remaining cheese over the top.

Broil for 3 to 4 minutes, until browned and bubbling. Garnish with extra rosemary, if desired.

Cook’s Tip: For better browning, blend one tablespoon melted butter into the fresh bread crumbs before sprinkling over sauce. This recipe is also excellent with Alaska Halibut or Cod!
