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 the time accordingly if the fillets are thinner or thicker than haddock fillets.

Use garlic- or Parmesan-seasoned breadcrumbs, 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 skinless haddock

  • Kosher salt, to taste

  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/3 cup milk

  • 1 cup fine dry Parmesan-seasoned breadcrumbs

  • Lemon wedges and tartar sauce, or rémoulade sauce, for serving

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Line a baking dish with foil. Brush the foil with olive oil. Use garlic or lemon-infused oil if you have it.  Heat the oven to 425 F / 220 C / Gas 7. 

  3. Cut the haddock into serving-size pieces. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.

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

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

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

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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Serve with lemon wedges and tartar sauce orrémoulade sauce.
