What to pair haddock with?
Serve fried haddock fillets with tartar sauce and French fries (that’s my favorite). Haddock goes really well with carrots, roasted potatoes, and bell peppers, rice or steamed broccoli, green beans, or asparagus).
Cook with fresh, high-quality fish (look for fillets that are firm and shiny; whole haddock should have bright eyes and bright red gills). Rinse the haddock fillets under cold water and pat them dry with a paper towel. You can leave the skin on or remove it, depending on your preference. If you’re leaving the skin on, make a few shallow slashes in the skin so that it doesn’t curl up during cooking.
