  • 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.
