What Kind of Fish is Haddock?
Not only is this salad easy to make and delicious, but it is so good for you! Here at Sizzlefish, our haddock is a North American species related to cod. Did you know that Sizzlefish haddock has twice the amount of Omega3s as cod? The mild flavor and flaky texture of our haddock works so well in this salad recipe. We love the combination of grilled haddock with the nutty quinoa along with crisp summer vegetables combined with fresh cilantro and brightly flavored BBQ sauce to make this amazing combination.
