    How this crispy baked haddock recipe came to be

    I’ve been really into white flakey fish lately and using them as a base for flavorful recipes.

    Cod and haddock are both light-flavored fish and whatever ingredients you add into them become really prominent and the fish essentially explodes with flavor.

    I like using punchy ingredients to really elevate the basic fish.

    You really do need to use bold ingredients otherwise the fish will just be bland and boring.

    To me, lemon with fish is just a natural pairing.

    Lemon is a bright citrus and when used right, it gives a dish a floral and exciting flavor.

    It can brighten any mood and if you’re stuck inside on a cloudy, dreary day, pretty sure this crispy baked haddock recipe will cheer you right up!

    Since fish takes very little time to cook, this dish can come together in less than 20 minutes!

    The fish only takes SEVEN minutes to cook! SEVEN!

    What is haddock?

    Haddock is a lean white fish with medium flakes (as you can see in the photos below).

    It has a subtle sweet taste like cod and it is a rather firm yet tender fish even after being cooked.

    It literally melts in your mouth and is incredibly easy to cook.

    Can I use another kind of fish for this crispy baked haddock?

    I would use a light-flavored white fish.

    Can I use any kind of mayo?

    Sure, you can use whatever kind of mayo you prefer.

    Avocado oil mayo, light mayo, etc.

    What if I don’t have panko breadcrumbs?

    It would be best if you used panko breadcrumbs because it yields a crispier crust.

    If you don’t have it, you can use unseasoned breadcrumbs.

    What do you serve with crispy baked haddock?

    We served this with a roasted vegetable because you can roast the vegetable together in the same oven while you bake the haddock.
