Making a baked haddock is not an altogether difficult task as fish tends to cook rather quickly and maintains a lot of the moisture in the fillets.

I am going to tell you how to make an easy baked haddock recipe that you can bring a little bit of Thai seasoning to give a little bit of a flavour burst to your baked haddock dish.

Remember that baking fish is much the same for all fish fillets and each time you can experiment with the different flavours of the different types of fish. The basic fundamentals to making a baked fish dish are the same, so do go ahead and add some of your favorite herbs and spices if you like to your favorite seafood recipes.

Provided fish have some form of layer above that is moist, the layer will absorb all the direct heat emiited by the baking process. This will enable the fish to cook in its own moistre and preserve the maximum flavors.

  2. Whilst you are waiting for the oven to heat up, you can slice the potatoes, tomatos and chop the onion.
  3. Get a casserole dish, oven proof of course and smeer some olive oil or greaser onto the dish creating a thin film to prevent sticking.
  4. Place the fillets of haddock into the casserole dish creating a layer to cover the bottom of the dish.
  5. Now you can add some salt, pepper and the thai spices to flavor the haddock.
  6. Now you are ready to layer the onion pieces and the tomato into a layer which will seal the fish layer and protect it from burning.
  7. Now is the time to add the slices of potato to the dish. Gently layer the slices of potato onto the tomatos.
  8. Get a mixing jug and combine the buttermilk and the instant chicken a la king sauce. Pour the mixture over the potato layer which will slowly seep into the potatos while baking.
  9. By now your oven should be ready and constant at 180 degrees. You can place the completed casserole dish into the oven and bake it for 35 to 40 minutes.
