Buttery Ritz Haddock on the Grill

"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."

  1. Pretty simple and tasty recipe. I followed some of cmack0608's recommendations (adding more Parmesan cheese and garlic, AND dipping in flour before dipping in egg batter); I didn't have any dill weed, but it obviously didn't matter as the family cleaned up the two pounds of haddock I grilled this afternoon. Next time I'll have to post a photo.
  2. 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.
  3. Love baked cheese portion!
  4. Delicious and easy. Didn't have dill so I used cilantro. Breading would be amazing on chicken too. <br/>We will be making this again. Thank you for sharing
