Can anyone suggest a good recipe for haddock, preferably something with sauce (my lot don't like really dry food).
Thanks in advance

Sorry for mentioning the obvious, but one of my favourite meals is Haddock in old fashioned parsley sauce.

You can make your own, buy ready made in a tub or evn in a packet. All of which are fine.

Serve with mash, peas and sweetcorn.

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!!! and Delish

Smoked Haddock with Creme Fraiche, Chive and Butter Sauce

12-14 oz (350-400 g) smoked haddock or smoked cod, skinned, or same weight golden haddock cutlets, skinned
2 rounded tablespoons cr�me fra�che
1 heaped tablespoon snipped fresh chives
� oz (10 g) butter, diced
5 fl oz (150 ml) whole milk
freshly milled black pepper

You will also need a frying pan with a diameter of 10 inches (25.5 cm).

First place the fish in the frying pan and add a little freshly milled black pepper but no salt. Then pour in the milk (it won't cover the fish, but that doesn't matter), bring it up to simmering point and simmer gently, uncovered, for 8-12 minutes if you're using pieces of smoked haddock or cod, or 8 minutes for golden haddock cutlets. You will be able to see quite clearly when they are cooked, as the whole thing will become pale and opaque.

Now carefully remove the fish to a plate using a fish slice, increase the heat and add the cr�me fra�che to the pan. Continue to simmer, uncovered, for 2-3 minutes, until the sauce reduces and thickens slightly, then whisk in the butter and return the fish to the sauce briefly. Scatter in the chives, let it bubble for about 30 seconds and it's ready to serve.

Thanks for your suggestions.

The parsley sauce & creme fraiche recipes sound tempting & I'll give them both a try, but I'll pass on the mushy peas thanks.
the recipe with creme fraiche sounds lovely - i've been wondering what to do with a large piece of salmon i have in the freezer - enough for the whole family - i wonder if i could substitute that?
I put a haddock fillet in a baking dish and season it. Sprinkle over torn basil leaves, shelled king prawns, slices of avacado and grate over some cheddar. Drizzle with a little double cream and bake in the oven for about 20 mins. The juice of the fish mixes with the cream and the cheese to make a 'sauce'. I serve with steamed veg and new potatoes or a green salad. Lovely!!
You can then vary the recipe and add things such as halved cherry tomatoes, mozzerella etc
I too love it with parsley sauce but I poach the fish gently in milk and then use the milk as the basis for a good old-fashioned home-made white sauce. Delish! Proper comfort food.

You've all given me plenty of ideas, many thanks for that. My problem now is I don't know which to try first.

Thanks again
Actually, cheese sauce is another tasty option. Serve with mash and peas.

Some people serve smoked haddock on a bed of cooked spinach topped with a poached egg (not my choice - I can't stand boiled or poached eggs).

Smoked haddock is also lovely baked in the oven with butter and ground black pepper and eaten with chunks of crusty bread and butter (not for those watching their weight obviously).
