Haddock with a herb and lemon crumb
Here's another great tray bake recipe that our haddock fillets are perfect for.
You will need: A magimix or similar. A baking tray
Ingredients: 4 x Urchin Haddock fillets, 2 large handfuls of crusty bread chunks zest of one lemon, 1 clove of garlic, 100g parmesan cheese, a handful each of parsley and basil (or any leafy herb you like), rapeseed or olive oil.
Slightly stale bread is ideal but if you don't have any, break up some crusty bread- sourdough is ideal and place it dry into a baking tray. place in the oven on low (120 C) for 15 mins to dry it out a bit.
Add the bread to a blender and blitz into a rough crumb. then add the lemon zest, garlic (crushed and peeled first) cheese, herbs and salt and pepper.
Whizz again until you have a nice green coloured loose crumb with the ingredients well dispersed throughout don't worry too much if its not all the same size.
Drizzle some oil on a baking tray and then place the fillets skin side down on top. add some more oil on top and then generously pile on the herby crumb. the oil should help it stick to the fish a bit.
drizzle a little more oil on top and then put the tray in the oven at 180C for 10-15 mins. The crumb should have a slightly golden colour to it (and a satisfying crunch). Be careful not to over cook the fish.
Done! serve with some new potatoes and greens or a leeky mash and peas.
Don't feel you have to stick to the recipe too much, any flavor/ spice can be added to the bread crumb mix as long as it remains a crumb like texture.
