Heavenly Haddock


Moist and flavorful. So easy, too. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Yes, that’s right. In an oval fry pan, drizzle olive oil on the bottom and place one large or two haddock filets on top. 1 1/2 – 2 lbs. Drizzle olive oil on the filet(s), season with salt and pepper, then pats of butter, panko crumbs, and finally thin lemon slices. Bake at 200 degrees for 45 minutes and remove pan from oven. Remove lemon slices.

Put broiler on low. Spoon residual olive oil over panko crumbs. Place under broiler on top rack until panko is brown. Serve with rice and capers or salsa. That’s it. Always perfect.
