Haddock is a light, mild, and delicious flaky white fish related to cod. If you can't find haddock, try this recipe with cod, flounder, or sole fillets. Just be sure to adjust time accordingly if the fillets are thinner or thicker than haddock fillets.

Use garlic or Parmesan seasoned bread crumbs, or add garlic powder or a few tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese to plain breadcrumbs.

This haddock is lighter than the typical deep fried fish, and it's still delicious and flaky. Serve this tasty oven fried haddock with tartar sauce, coleslaw, and fries or steamed vegetables. 


  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil (for the baking dish)
  • 1 1/2 pounds haddock fillets (without skin)
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Black pepper (freshly ground) to taste
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup flour (all-purpose)
  • 1 cup fine dry Parmesan breadcrumbs (or garlic ​seasoned or other seasoned bread crumbs)

Steps to Make It

Line a baking dish with foil. Brush the foil with olive oil. Use a garlic or lemon infused oil if you have it. 

Heat the oven to 425 F (220 C/Gas 7). 

Cut the fish into serving size pieces. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.

Put the flour in a wide bowl, pan, or plate.

Whisk egg and milk together in a wide bowl until the mixture is smooth.

Spread the breadcrumbs in a wide bowl, pan, or plate.

Arrange the bowl and plates in this order: flour, milk, and egg, then breadcrumbs.

Dip the fish fillets in the flour, coating thoroughly, then dip in the milk and egg mixture. Coat with breadcrumbs. Arrange on the baking pan and repeat with the remaining fillets and breading.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes. Turn and continue baking for another 8 to 10 minutes, or until cooked through. The fish will flake easily with a fork. Allow a little more time for thicker pieces.

Serve with lemon wedges and tartar sauce or remoulade sauce. Serves 4 to 6.
