Cjw Coley And Pancetta Pasta770X600

Three cheers to coley – a real unsung seafood hero!

Thu 1st February 2018

Coley has been much maligned over the years and still has the thoroughly undeserved reputation of being only good enough for the cat! Well, I can tell you, my cat isn't getting any!

But many think the flavour is superior to cod, and personally I'd agree! This fish is usually sold filleted. The skin is coal black with a silver scaly belly. The most recognisable part is the thick white lateral line that runs down the middle. The flesh is pink-grey, but don't let this put you off!
