Today I’m sharing my (not so) secret trick to make each & every piece of white fish you make taste marvelous. It’s simple, it’s easy, it’s….butter! Brown butter to be exact 😉
I LOVE all things fish & seafood. It’s delicate, it’s delicious & it’s nutritious. To top it all off – seafood is quick to make and doesn’t require many ingredients to turn into something spectacular.
October is National Seafood Month! What better time to celebrate how we can all feel good about enjoying delicious seafood. I’ve paired up with Seafood Nutrition Partnership to share the benefits of eating more seafood – every month of the year.
Start by taking The Healthy Heart Pledge! That means you recognize seafood is a healthy choice for you and your family and you’ll pledge to eat at least two servings of seafood each week and supplement with omega-3s. It’s a fun & simple way to let friends and family know that you’re making a positive commitment to your health. You can also like Seafood Nutrition Partnership on Facebook and post to your social media with #HealthyHeartPledge to join the movement!
The USDA recommends Americans eat at least two servings of seafood per week to take in adequate amounts of lean protein, omega-3s, vitamins, and minerals. Eating seafood twice a week leads to healthier hearts, healthier brains and better nutrition!
Two servings of seafood is a pleasure to add to any weekly menu. It’s simple to do, too.
The first recipe I shared was this yummy, buttery, garlicky Shrimp Scampi. I’m back with another fabulous recipe to get everyone excited about how easy and delicious it is to eat more seafood. Yay!
What’s great about this recipe is it can be made with any white fish you prefer. I use haddock but flounder, cod, halibut, pollock, grouper, hake – really any mild white fish you’d like will be wonderful. You spritz it with a bit of olive oil, lightly season it and bake for about 15- 20 minutes. Drizzle it with brown butter and voilá – dinner is served!
I swear, brown butter takes a simple piece of fish from good to gourmet. Serve with your favorite green veggie or salad and dinner is complete! This fabulous dinner can be all yours without much time, attention or clean up.
It’s wonderful to know simple changes & additions to our daily diet can have such a positive impact on our health. Cheers to seafood and better health 🙂
Oh, and here’s a little fun for you all! Show off your culinary skills and share a picture & recipe of your favorite “five ingredient or less” seafood dish for a chance to win! I’m totally drooling looking at all these delicious seafood dishes all over Twitter & Instagram ♥
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Baked Haddock with Brown Butter
- 12-16 oz of haddock fillets or white fish of choice
- olive oil
- salt pepper, paprika & dried parsley
- 2 tablespoon butter
- For Fish:
- Preheat oven to 350°F
- Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and lightly grease by spritzing or drizzling olive oil over it.
- Place fish, skin side down, on cookie sheet.
- Lightly spritz or drizzle olive oil on top of fish fillets.
- Lightly season with a sprinkle of salt, pepper, paprika & parsley.
- Bake for 15 - 20 minutes (depending on thickness) until fish flakes easily with fork.
- Drizzle with brown butter and serve immediately. Enjoy 🙂
- For Brown Butter:
- Add 2 tablespoons butter to a saucepan. Don't walk away, stay by saucepan during whole process - it only takes a few minutes start to finish and can burn easily.
- Over medium to medium high heat, melt butter and continually whisk or swirl butter.
- Butter will start to foam up, keeping whisking or swirling. You'll notice little brown specks at the bottom of the pan. Remove from heat and continue to whisk or swirl for a few seconds.
- This stuff is HOT so don't go sticking pastry brushes in it right away (I speak from experience lol). Let rest for a minute and use a metal spoon to drizzle over fish.
