Lemon & Parsley Crusted Haddock
I always like a bargain, and this week Lidl had haddock fillets on special so I snapped a pack up. I had no idea what I was going to do with them until I remember a commentor on my blog mentioned breading fish with breadcrumbs & lemon zest. I had some Panko breadcrumbs left to use, but you could use any sort of breadcrumbs that you like. We had our fish with chips, peas & sweetcorn - yummy!
2 haddock pieces
1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water added
2 tablespoons plain flour
2 tablespoons breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
Salt/pepper for seasoning
zest of 1 lemon
olive oil for drizzling
Mix the breadcrumbs, parsley, lemon zest & season. Dip the haddock into the flour, tap off the excess, then dip into the beaten egg and finally into the breadcrumb mix, pressing on the crumbs to completely coat the fish. Repeat with the second fillet. Arrange on a bakingtray & drizzle with olive oil. Cook at 200C for about 20 minutes, until the breadcrumbs are golden & crispy.
