mmmmmmmm Haddock

I tried haddock for the first time just a few weeks ago and I loved it. the fillets were nice and thick and I decided to cook some with a cornmeal crust and some battered a fried and both ways were just WONDERFUL. I liked the haddock so much that we had it again the next week and I baked it and yes again it was sweet and flaky.

*Cornmeal crusted haddock*

I cut the fillets into manageable "serving" size pieces and then I seasoned with salt and pepper, dredged in flour, then in beaten egg and lastly cornmeal and pan fried in hot oil.

*Batter fried haddock*

made a batter with 1 cup flour, 1 cup liquid (milk, water, beer, ext.) salt, pepper and an egg. mix ingredients and let batter set for about 15 minutes. dip the fish fillets in the batter and fry in hot oil until golden and crisp.

*Baked haddock*

brush a small about of olive oil (or butter) on the bottom of a baking dish. Season the haddock with salt, pepper and paprika drizzle a little olive oil and bake at 400F for 15-20 minutes.

Serve with homemade tarter sauce.

I love the idea of having a cornmeal crust. I don't think I've ever had that before!

I am so glad you like the fish! Since we are surrounded by water, fish is on our plates at least 2-3 times a week. I love it! And yours with that home made tartar sauce - Too Yum!

I wish I could afford to eat fish more then once a week we all love it and not only eating it my kids love to go fishing too. The only one in my family that is not a fisher is my husband.

Haddock was probably the most popular fish in Scotland (esp in fish & chips), but I'm unfortunately having hard time finding it in Estonia. Luckily we've got European flounder and other excellent local fish to compensate :)
