Bread the Haddock

In one bowl, combine milk and salt. In a separate bowl combine the Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, and thyme. Dip the haddock filet into the wet mixture, then into the dry mixture. Place on a baking dish and repeat with each remaining filet. Drizzle the fish with melted butter.


Bake the haddock until the fish is flaky and the crust is golden brown.

How Long to Bake Haddock

"This is so simple to make and my husband and I thought it was awesome...definitely give it a try...I also added some garlic salt to the panko bread crumbs…can't wait to have it again," says SharonC.

"This was great! I followed the recipe almost exactly, just cutting down on the butter and thyme. The fish was so flaky and crispy. The high heat did really well," according to goodayathome. "I think any spices would be great (garlic, onion, Old Bay, etc). Any mild fish would work too. Really good base recipe that you can tweak to your liking."

"My family loves this fish! Even my picky 15 yr old nephew! The only change I make is that I add an amount equal to the thyme of black pepper, onion powder and garlic powder to the cheese/breadcrumb mixture and I use Panko breadcrumbs instead of regular. It comes out nice and crispy and smells delicious," raves Tiffany J Brooks.
