Haddock Bake

April 19, 2013

Down in the Ocean

I have always been fascinated by fish.  I remember when I was younger I used to watch programmes about the fish in the depths of the ocean.  I remember being astonished by the amazing creatures which were way beyond my imagination, some beautiful and some horrifying.  When I cook fish I always make sure it ends its life well.  I do not know what I would do if I couldn’t eat fish, I feel so sorry for those who are allergic to it.  My haddock bake is a great example of a simple dish you could make which celebrates the beautiful fish flavours.  The seasoning is subtle and can be adapted to many other types of fish.

This recipe was adapted from Asda Magazine (February, 2013).

Saffy’s Top Tip:

Always make sure to check if your fish is cooked all the way through.  The chunkier the cut the longer the cooking time.  It also depends on which type of fish you are using as well.
