    Just did this with some fresh whiting as a way of using up some of our rampant tarragon plant in the greenhouse. Highly recommended! Didn't kill the rather delicate flavour of this fish. I used brown breadcrumbs rather than Ritz, and probably quite a bit more tarragon and chives than it calls for (well, once you've picked it...), but it was still delicious. Also, I only cooked it for 15 minutes in a 170C fan oven and it was perfectly cooked. 20-30 mins would have been too much. Definitely will do this again.

    Great recipe! I have made this recipe several times, breadcrumbs worked well in place of the ritz and even good without ritz or breadcrumbs. Thanks for sharing!

    Great fish! I used haddock fillets. We loved the buttery, lemony flavor with the tarragon. I put lemon slices on the bottom and top of the fillets. Thanx for posting this easy, delicious fish recipe. I'll make this again.


I am a very busy girl with a two year old boy and a crazy full time job! With all that I do not have alot of time to cook, but I love cooking and serving my family homemade food. I love reading cookbooks so this site is a major hit with me. I love getting feedback on my recipes and giving feedback to others. I love being able to post a request and getting all of the help from people everywhere. In the summer I love canning and making my own jellies and jams. I usually end up giving it away as gifts, that always seemed like a more personal gift. What could be better than something homemade?
