Haddock is such a perfect fish to cook when you’re looking for a mild easy to cook seafood meal. It cooks well in most all fish recipes, which makes it incredibly versatile, while also being one of the healthier white fishes since it contains a healthy amount of omega-3s. Haddock, a North American species related to cod, has long been one of the most popular fish in northern Europe for this very reason. Here at Sizzlefish, our haddock is caught in the beautiful, pristine, cold waters of Iceland and packaged at the peak of freshness before shipping to you.

2 Sizzlefish Haddock Fillets
½ cup Plain Breadcrumbs
3 TBSP Butter, melted
½ tsp Garlic Powder
¼ tsp Paprika
Kosher Salt, to taste
Fresh Cracked Black Pepper, to taste
Fresh Parsley, chopped for garnish
Preheat the oven to 350° F.
Line a small sheet pan or baking dish with parchment paper.
Pat the haddock fillets dry with a paper towel. Place the dried fillets on the prepared sheet pan (or baking dish), putting them close together so that they almost touch.
Squeeze a little fresh lemon juice over the fillets. Season well with garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper.
In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs and melted butter. Stir well to combine.
Evenly distribute the breadcrumbs on the haddock fillets, making sure they are completely covered on the sides and top.
Place the pan in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until fillets reach an internal temperature of 145° F.
Serve the breaded fillets with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and freshly chopped parsley.
