Make and share this Poor Man's Lobster #1 recipe from Food.com.
- 2 lbs haddock
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vinegar
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 8 tablespoons butter or 8 tablespoons margarine, melted
- Cover filets with cold water and add vinegar and salt.
- Bring to a boil and boil for only 10 minutes.
- Serve with melted butter.
- Fish may also be place under the broiler 1-2 minutes to brown.
This was just delicious Kim and SO easy. I prepared this with haddock and followed directions exactly. I covered the fish with the cold water, vinegar and salt and set it over high heat. After 10 minutes it hadn't come to a boil yet, but was quite hot and the fish was adequately cooked. We don't like overcooked fish so I felt it was time to serve and I was right. We all liked it very much. I don't think I'd cook it for the full 10 minutes after the boil. Thanks for posting this delicious, easy, quick recipe....it's a keeper for sure :)
I could swear(if I sweared, which I do not) that this tasted just like lobster!!! I haven't eaten lobster in about 11 years, but oh it was so good and so easy to make, without all the cholesterol! I could not get haddock at the store so I got orange roughy. Thanks Kim, my husband wants me to make this again soon!!!
Kim, thank you, thank you, thank you! Your recipe convinced me to overcome my phobia of cooking fish :lol It was so easy and the whole house didn't smell like fish. Plus, the fish was delish! I used Cod. This is definitely a keeper. Made for Zaar Stars tag, please see my rating system as I rate tougher than most.
