We loved this recipe! My husband thought it tasted like restaurant quality fish. I only baked mine for 25 minutes and it was done. Thanks so much for sharing this simply elegant and delicious recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 slices haddock (about two inches thick)
  • 6 slices lemons
  • 1 12 cups breadcrumbs (or rusk crumbs, which were originally called for in this cookbook)
  • salt, to taste
  • butter, to personal preference (no substitutions)


  1. Spray a cooking pan with cooking spray (Pam) and preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Arrange fish in pan and place a lemon slice on each piece.
  3. Sprinkle with crumbs, season with salt and dot liberally with butter.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes or until fish is done (it will easily flake).
  5. Serve hot.
