Haddock Provencal

"Another quick, weeknight recipe, but good enough for company (I make it for Christmas eve dinner every year). I can usually have the fish, rice pilaf, and steamed vegetable on the table in 30 minutes. This is also good using scallops (or any white fish). My family (even the kids) love this. Update: I increased the cooking time from 10 to 15 minutes due to comments, but really, with fish, you are going to have to use some judgment - oven, thickness of fillets, and personal preference will all play a role. I still think 5 minutes of broiling is usually right on for getting the top bubbly and a little brown."

  1. This was really good, we really enjoyed it. I love fish and always looking for new ways to cook it. I always seem to over cook my fish though, I always think it's never long enough. That happened here, as I think after the 15 minutes was over I broiled it a bit to crisp up the bread crumbs but that just made it a little overcooked. My fault and not the recipes fault.
  2. I have never made Haddock before and chose this recipe for it's ease. I was so happy with the outcome! My husband and I finished off the whole batch! YUM!
  3. This is a keeper. My hubby is not a big fish eater, but he said, "You gotta rate this one HIGH!"
  4. This was very good- easy and tasty and attractive presentation as well. Definitely 'company appropriate.' DH loved the lemon flavor which was very pronounced, as a previous reviewer stated. The only issue was that I had to cook it for nearly triple the time stated, and my fillets weren't even that thick. Probably my oven, but just a heads up to others. Thanks!
  5. This was GREAT! Easy and the family loved it. I couldn't find Haddock, but used Cod. My 6 year old wanted more! I think I added too much lemon because you got a big taste of "tang". Definately will use this again!
