This recipe is from the Fish in Schools Hero programme, which operates in the UK. The programme aims to ensure that every child gets a chance to prepare, cook and eat fish before they leave school and to train food teachers to be confident in preparing and cooking fish with local students. Supported by the Fishmongers’ Company’s Fisheries Charitable Trust, Fish in School Hero programme is managed by the Food Teachers Centre and their volunteer team throughout the UK.

The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute (ASMI) is a key partner with the Food Teachers Centre on the Fish in Schools Hero programme, and has donated 20,000 portions of wild pink Alaska salmon to schools throughout the UK. This has enabled thousands of young people to prepare, cook and taste wild pink Alaska salmon.

The programme is supported by local heroes: fishmongers, fish-loving chefs and fish suppliers. For more information, please visit https://foodteacherscentre.co.uk/fish-heroes/ and follow #fishheroes on our social media:
