This simple broiled haddock is seasoned with a bit of soy sauce, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and fresh parsley.

Haddock is a saltwater fish found in the North Atlantic Ocean. Haddock is fished year-round and can reach lengths of 3 feet 7 inches. It's a popular food fish that is sold fresh, smoked, frozen, dried and even canned. Unlike cod, to which it is related, haddock does not salt well so you will rarely if ever find it in that form.

The fish is broiled and basted with the soy sauce and vegetable oil mixture and then it's served with the lemon and parsley sauce. Since the fish is basted with a soy ​sauce-vegetable oil mixture, it's not a low-fat option but definitely a great lower-fat option that takes mere minutes to prepare. 


Steps to Make It

  1. Cut rinsed and patted dry haddock fillets into serving pieces. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and set aside.

  2. In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce and vegetable oil.

  3. Arrange the fish pieces on an oiled broiler rack. Broil for about 3 minutes, or until lightly browned, basting frequently with the soy sauce-oil mixture.

  4. Carefully turn the fillets and broil for about 3 minutes longer, basting with more soy sauce-oil mixture. Actual cooking times may vary depending on the thickness of the fillets. Test for doneness by checking that the fish flakes easily and the flesh is a white opaque color.

  5. Place fish on a warm platter. 

  6. In a saucepan, combine remaining soy sauce-oil mixture with any drippings from the broiler pan. Bring to a simmer. Add lemon juice and parsley. Pour over fish.

  7. Serve immediately accompanied by sliced tomatoes and a salad of mixed greens. Rice pilaf would be another good side dish to serve with the fish.

Glass Bakeware Warning

Do not use glass bakeware when broiling or when a recipe calls to add liquid to a hot pan, as glass may explode. Even if it states oven-safe or heat resistant, tempered glass products can, and do, break occasionally.


  • When purchasing haddock, look for firm fillets that are translucent and not opaque until they are cooked.
