Haddock is a wonderful light and flaky white fish abundantly available in New England. This recipe spices up its mild flavor and is very quick and easy to prepare.

Recipe Ingredients

  • cooking spray
  • 2 pounds haddock fillets
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter, cut in small pieces
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. 2 Arrange haddock fillets on the prepared baking sheet. Mix onion powder, paprika, garlic powder, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl; sprinkle seasoning over haddock. Dot haddock with pieces of butter.
  3. 3 Broil in the preheated oven until fish is easily flaked with a fork, 6 to 8 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges.

  1. I may have dusted the fish with too much of the mix, but in our house the cayenne pepper ruined the meal. If you have to use it, I would suggest a small cayenne dusting, rather than adding to the mixture. It's hard to ruin broiled haddock, but I did!
  2. I would definitely do it again. I added a little celery salt. Unless you like it really hot I would cut it back to 1/8 tsp of the cayenne pepper but its definitely a keeper.
  3. Made this for dinner last night. Was the best fish I've had in years. My girlfriend doesn't usually like fish and she loved it. Said she would like to have at least once a week. Boom! I killed it as she said.
  4. Everyone complained when I told them we were having fish for dinner . . . but I didn't hear a peep out of anyone and their plates were clean when I served them this! Delicious and a "do again" in our house.
  5. The spices really appeal to me in this recipe….I was looking to jazz up the haddock filets I had and this fit the bill. For my own tastes I added a bit extra cayenne pepper and used half the butter. Under the broiler my filets were done in 8 minutes with a nice slightly crispy - Read more ...
  6. This is simple and flavorful. We've made it at least a dozen times in our house.
  7. Excellent recipe. Season the underside, for even more flavor!
  8. This was exactly what we were looking for. This is a very simple recipe, with a surprising amount of flavor and just the right amount of spice. It was light and tasty. Used lemon juice rather than lemon wedges and was still delicious.
  9. This recipe is easy and the spice combo is tasty! I used olive oil to make it dairy free.
