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.

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.
- 2 lbs skinless haddock fillets, cut into serving sized pieces (or any mild white fish)
- 1 1⁄2 cups Ritz crackers, crushed (1 sleeve)
- 1 teaspoon parsley
- 1 teaspoon dill weed
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese
- 1 egg, beaten
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
Directions See How It's Made
- Rinse fish with cold water, pat dry.
- Add parsley, dill, garlic powder and parmesan cheese to Ritz cracker crumbs, mix.
- Brush heavy duty foil with some of the melted butter.
- Dip fish into beaten egg, then into crumb mixture.
- Set onto prepared foil.
- Drizzle fish with remaining melted butter.
- Put foil / fish onto medium heat grill, close cover and grill for 4-5 minutes.
- With a spatula, VERY carefully flip each piece of fish, trying not to break the pieces.
- 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).
