Here at Sizzlefish, our wild Haddock is caught off the coast of Iceland in the North Atlantic Ocean. This mild fish is closely related to cod. It has a clean flavor making it perfect in just about any white fish recipe.
Portions of haddock arrive individually vacuum packaged for conveniently thawing as needed. If you like the flavor of cod in recipes, you’re sure to love haddock. Haddock contains twice the amount of omega-3 fatty acids as cod. This healthy fat helps support heart, brain and eye function. Haddock is also rich in B-vitamins 12, 6 and 3 supporting cell function and energy levels.
Before preparing haddock, allow them to thaw for 24 hours in the refrigerator. This no fuss recipe is made with ingredients you most likely have in your kitchen. Olive oil provides the base for the sauce along with fresh lemon juice. Honey adds balance to the recipe with a lightly sweet flavor. The honey in the recipe also helps encourage browning on the fish for a richer flavor. Fresh thyme leaves add a woodsy-floral herb aroma to the recipe that infuses into the olive oil as it cooks. Garlic powder adds the delicious flavor of garlic throughout the dish. You can also use fresh minced garlic.
Halfway through cooking, baste the haddock with the sauce from the pan using a spoon. This helps flavor the haddock and keeps it from drying out. Once the haddock is cooked, serve hot with lemon wedges. Serve haddock fillets with sautéed asparagus or broccolini, a fresh salad or baked potatoes to create a complete meal.
