How this crispy baked haddock recipe was
I have really been into white flakey fish recently and use them as a base for flavorful recipes.
Cod and haddock are both slightly flavorful fish, and whatever ingredients you add to them become really prominent, and the fish essentially explodes with flavor.
I like to use punchy ingredients to really raise the basic fish.
You really need to use bold ingredients, otherwise the fish will just be bland and boring.
For me, lemon with fish is just a natural pairing.
Lemon is a light citrus and when used properly, it gives a dish a floral and exciting flavor.
It can brighten any mood, and if you're stuck on a cloudy, dull day, you're pretty sure this crispy baked cabbage recipe will cheer you right up!
Since fish take very little time to cook, this dish can be assembled in less than 20 minutes!
The fish only takes seven minutes to cook! SEVEN!
What are haddock?
Haddock is a lean white fish with medium flakes (as you can see in the photos below).
It has a subtle sweet taste like cod, and it is a fairly firm but tender fish, even after it is cooked.
It literally melts in your mouth and is incredibly easy to cook.
What’s in the crust for the crispy baked haddock?
- Dijon mustard
- Lemon zest
- Lemon juice
- Garlic powder
- Dried basil
Can I use a different kind of fish for this crispy baked haddock?
I would use a white fish with a taste of flavor.
Cod or halibut works instead of haddock if you can't find it.
Can I use plain mustard?
Absolutely not. Dijon is the way to go here.
Can I use any kind of mayo?
Of course, you can use the kind of mayo you prefer.
Avocado oil mayo, light mayo, etc.
What if I don't have pancake bread?
It would be best if you used panko bread as it gives a crispier crust.
If you haven't, you can use unhealthy bread crumbs.
What do you serve with crispy baked haddock?
We served this with a roasted vegetable because you can roast the vegetable together in the same oven while baking haddock.
