Baked Lemon Haddock

After testing out a ton of haddock recipes, I've decided this baked haddock is the best. The mix of crunchy topping and lemon is just delicious. —Jean Ann Perkins, Newburyport, Maryland

    I looked up haddock last night saw this recipe and had my mom make it. The whole family loved it. The only thing my mom would change is a shorter cooking time. The dish was excellent we had it with corn and rice.

    Comment to Alex: Just half the recipe for 3 servings! 1 pound of fish vs. 2 pounds, etc. I used half breadcrumbs and half Panko for a crunchier texture, and changed nothing else. Very easy, quick and delicious.

    Is there a way to get 3 servings?

    Delicious. The fillets I used were quite thin so 15 minutes baking was enough. I also baked them at 375F, so needed to shorten the time. It gave a nice crispness to the breadcrumb topping. And so much easier to cook and serve than pan-frying. This recipe will be used again and again.

    I try to include fresh fish in our weekly meals ,so it is always nice to try new recipes. I made this the first time, yes it was good enough for a repeat, using haddock as listed. I sprinkled the fish with Old Bay seasoning before adding the breading ingredients. Delicious! The second time I substituted catfish because we love and it is more affordable. Again delicious! This is a good basic recipe that can be used with any mild white fish. Lynne, TOH Volunteer Food Editor

    I used catfish fillets instead of haddock. I dipped the fish in the butter before coating with crumbs. It made a nice crust and the lemon zest added freshness to the flavor. It was very tasty!

    I dipped the fish in butter first then gently pressed into bread crumb mixture. Simple and delicious fish recipe!

    I used Panko breadcrumbs, fresh garlic minced and herb seasoning to jazz it up. Ours was done in 15 min, convection oven.
