Baked Haddock

Waiting for warmer weather!
Looking out onto our deck four days ago only a small amount of snow was in sight!  Woohoo!  Glancing slightly to the left our much used grill sits... patiently waiting.  I was thinking about grilling fish.  Grilled Fish is so tasty and so easy to prepare.  However, around dinner stepping outside with a winter coat to grill seems... well, frankly, it's uncomfortable.

It's at these times that baking a fillet of fish in my warm kitchen is the thing to do!  There will be plenty of time for grilling.  When?  I don't know, but I'm sure there will be!  BTW Baked Haddock is delicious!  So there's no need to step in snow to prep dinner.

The method of baking Haddock is similar to grilling Haddock.  However, 2 Bay Leaves are placed under the fillet in a baking dish. 

Baked Haddock 
Oven:  350°F     Time:  20-22 Minutes


1 lb. fillet of Haddock - can be fresh or defrosted
1 teaspoon Olive Oil for sauteing & baking
2 Bay Leaves

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Line a shallow baking pan with foil. Spray with PAM.
  3. Place Bay Leaves on foil.
  4. Rinse fillet in cold running water.
  5. Place fillet on Bay Leaves in baking pan.
  6. Drizzle Olive Oil on fillet.
  7. Sprinkle small amount of Paprika on fish.
  8. Then, repeat with a small amount of Thyme.
  9. Bake for 20- 22 Minutes.  (It will be done when fish flakes easily with a fork.)
**Small amount = 2 shakes of the Paprika or of the Thyme.

We enjoy Baked Haddock with a microwaved "baked" potato and a salad.  This is an easy and a very tasty dinner!  Great for this time of year!

What an easy and delicious way to prepare fish. It will be warm enough to grill outside in another month or so and I can't wait. Happy Easter, JG.

Cathy- It's wonderful to enjoy this "backup" plan with Haddock.

Mary- Definitely a carefree method to prep this seafood. :)
