Fresh fish, Haddock

Fresh fish, Haddock

Preparing fresh fish is truly stress-free. Knowing where to purchase fresh fish is important, trusting the source and knowing it got to market as soon as possible. As a consumer, ask questions about where the fish came from, how long has it been in the food display and ask to smell the piece of fish you intend to purchase. A fresh piece of fish has no smell, it should not smell like fish!!! Hint: if you smell an odor like ammonia just around the fish counter, walk away, don’t bother buying fish there.

The simplicity of preparing this healthy fish meal is a relief, knowing I can quickly serve a lean protein meal for my family and be satisfying to our taste buds.

What you will need:
Fresh haddock, about one pound for two to three people.
Medium baking dish
Olive oil, about 3 tbs. or (butter for enhanced flavor, more calories)
Panko crumbs or plain bread crumbs, about 1/4 cup
Salt and crushed black pepper, enough to sprinkle over fish
Pot holders
Large spatula

How to prepare this recipe:
Baking rack should be in the middle of the oven. Preheat setting of the oven should be 400 degrees F.

Put the fresh haddock in a baking dish
Put a little olive oil down the top center of the fish
Sprinkle Panko crumbs (or bread crumbs) on top of the olive oil
Salt and ground pepper on top of the fish (optional)

Put the baking dish with the prepared fish into the oven at 400 degrees F. for about 15-20 minutes or until fish looks white, browned on top and flakes easily.
