Baked Haddock

I love Haddock. I love it breaded, fried, grilled, broiled or baked. It doesn't matter how it's cooked. It's one of my favorite foods and definitely my favorite fish.

I came across this recipe recently and it just sounded so good. I had to make it. Luckily, haddock was on sale at our grocery store so I quickly added it to our menu plan. To my surprise, when my husband read the menu, he was excited to try it.

We both really enjoyed it and I will definitely be making it again and again. The flavor is wonderful and the buttery Ritz crackers on top complete it. I would almost consider this dish restaurant's that good. Although it goes against my "healthy" way of cooking, I am so glad I found this recipe because it has easily made it's way as one of my top ten favorites.

Baked Haddock
(adapted from Dawn's Recipes, serves 2-3)

1 lb haddock fillets

3 T salted butter, melted

3 T white cooking wine

1 T lemon juice

10-15 Ritz crackers, crumbled

Parsley (for garnish)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Rinse fish fillets and pat dry with a paper towel. Cut in half, if desired, to fit in the baking dish.

Combine melted butter, cooking wine and lemon juice. Pour a few tablespoons into the bottom of a square baking dish.

Place fish fillets on top of the butter mixture in the baking dish. Then pour remaining butter mixture over the top. Evenly sprinkle the Ritz crackers over the top of the fish. Then lightly sprinkle with the parsley.

Bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until the fish flakes easily. If the Ritz cracker topping starts to get too brown, lightly tent a piece of foil over the dish and continue to cook until done. Enjoy!
