Recipe: Baked haddock. Thanks Susie!


I bought some haddock yesterday and stopped by to visit my friend Susie on the way from the market. I wasn’t sure what to do with the fish and Susie recommended something close to today’s recipe. I had to alter it due to missing ingredients, but damn, it’s good. You can argue that today’s recipe is not the healthiest on this site, you’d be right if you thought that.

However, it’s a lot healthier than most pre-made frozen fish, so points for that. I served this with roasted Yukon gold potatoes and steamed kale, it was so good it vanished.

You’ll need:

  • About 1 pound of Haddock filets (I got wild, line caught)
  • About a tablespoon or two or real mayonnaise, Hellman’s works well
  • About 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese
  • Paprika
  • About 1/4 teaspoon fresh or dried parsley
  • Celtic sea salt
  • About 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 F.
  2. Grab an oven proof dish and coat lightly with olive oil.
  3. Lay the filets in the dish, not overlapping.
  4. Spread the mayonnaise on evenly, you don’t need a super thick coat, just enough so you don’t see the fish clearly.
  5. Sprinkle some paprika on top, about 1/4 teaspoon.
  6. Put the parmesan on.
  7. Sprinkle on salt, breadcrumbs and parsley.
  8. Pop into the oven, middle rack for about 18 minutes or until done.
  9. Serve.

This is the kind of recipe you can make for people who claim they don’t like fish, this would be great for kids. I’l be doing this again, it was stupid easy and delicious. Thanks Susie!
