Buttery Ritz Haddock on the Grill

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 10 mins

This was an accidental discovery when there was no marinade or bread crumbs on hand. The result was a new favorite way to grill fish! You could also do this in the oven, I'm sure.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse fish with cold water, pat dry.
  2. Add parsley, dill, garlic powder and parmesan cheese to Ritz cracker crumbs, mix.
  3. Brush heavy duty foil with some of the melted butter.
  4. Dip fish into beaten egg, then into crumb mixture.
  5. Set onto prepared foil.
  6. Drizzle fish with remaining melted butter.
  7. Put foil / fish onto medium heat grill, close cover and grill for 4-5 minutes.
  8. With a spatula, VERY carefully flip each piece of fish, trying not to break the pieces.
  9. Continue to cook about another 3-4 minutes, or until white and flakes easily with fork. (The total cooking time will depend on the type and thickness of fish).

I am giving this five stars due to the inspiration; although I changed several things. For the cracker mix, I added more Parmesan cheese, more garlic powder, and more dill weed than what was called for. I used Tilapia fillets instead of haddock. When prepping the fillets, I dipped them in flour prior to the egg. These changes were made after making the recipe several times. The basic recipe is very good, I just had to tweak it a little for personal taste. I made my own tartar sauce, when extra lemon juice, and I served it with salted sliced tomatoes, macaroni salad, and corn on the cob-delicious meal! Also, very easy and fairly quick; the fillets cooked four minutes on each side.

Delicious and easy. Didn't have dill so I used cilantro. Breading would be amazing on chicken too.
We will be making this again. Thank you for sharing
