      Yummy fish recipe. The taste really is very similar to lobster, but you just can't expect a flaky fish like haddock to have the same texture. I did add some sugar to the water mixture; I think that helped make it taste more lobsterish. I served it with melted garlic butter. Thanx for sharing!

      DH and I agree, nothing like lobster, but still nice. Gave a very firm piece of cooked fish, would be great if you needed to use cold boiled fish for any reason.
