Lemon-Poached Haddock Fillets

Haddock’s delicate flake and slightly sweet taste give it a wonderful, melt-in-the-mouth appeal. The lean meat has a firm yet tender texture, and the flake is finer than cod.

Cooking tips:

  •     The same recipes that work for cod are good for the versatile haddock.
  •     Smaller haddock fillets are easily sautéed, while all haddock is good in soups and stews.
  •     Haddock is good poached and excellent for pan frying, as the meat holds together better than cod or pollock.
