Helpful hints

  • Buy haddock steaks or fillets. Thaw if frozen. Cooking time may vary with thickness of fillets or steaks. Test after 30 minutes.
  • If sauce is not thickened when fish is done, remove fish from pan, stir sauce and return to oven for 5-10 minutes.
  • If you are on a higher or lower protein diet, adjust fish portion to match your meal plan.
  • Omit salt if desired. Sodium is reduced to 122 mg per serving.
