Broiled Haddock Recipe (5 Ingredients)

Broiling is an excellent method of cooking if you&rsquore looking to make something quickly and easily.

What&rsquos more, if you do it right, you end up with a dish that&rsquos moist and packed with flavor!

The quick cooking time that you get with broiling is why it&rsquos a great cooking method for lean proteins such as chicken and fish.

Haddock is a fish that will benefit greatly from being broiled. Since it&rsquos a white-fleshed fish, it can dry out quite easily if you cook it for too long, especially if you&rsquore going to use haddock fillets.

This amazing recipe allows you to whip up delicious and savory haddock fillets in less than 20 minutes!

It&rsquos the perfect dish to serve on those busy weekday nights when you don&rsquot want to spend hours in the kitchen, but still eat a meal that tastes you like did!

Why This Recipe Works

This is an easy, quick, healthy recipe to make. From start to finish, it takes less than 20 minutes.

It doesn’t take a lot of ingredients. It’s simply cod fillets seasoned with butter, garlic, lemon, and fresh herbs. It’s the best broiled cod recipe I’ve had yet!

Cod is a mild fish that even kids will enjoy. This is definitely a family-friendly recipe. It’s also great for those following a low carb, keto, and/or gluten free diet.

Baked Halibut with Basil Butter

Every spring we start eating more fish than we had through the cold months. Do you do that as well? I presume it’s because everything about fish screams light.

Light in color. Light and flaky in texture. Light flavor of the sea. Light on the waistline.

I even find that most types of fish taste best when prepared with a light seasoning, and are lightly cooked… not dried out.

Baked halibut is a fabulous spring dish, because it has such a luxurious taste and texture, and needs only a kiss of flavor to make it shine.

I like to deliver that kiss with a touch of butter.

Butter is a perfect complement to all types of light flaky fish, yet I find is really does wonders for halibut.

In today’s easy 5-Ingredient Baked Halibut with Basil Butter Recipe, I used Land O Lakes® Spreadable Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt. This fabulous go-to butter and olive oil spread offers rich buttery flavor that is easy to shmear right out of the refrigerator. With real ingredients: butter, olive oil, and sea salt, it’s a wonderful spreadable option without any fillers. (So it’s gluten free!)

I pureed Land O Lakes ® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt with fresh basil leaves and a little garlic. Then I spread just a teaspoon over the top of each halibut fillet.

I sprinkled each fillet with a light dusting of almond meal to create a crusty, nutty top and then I popped them in the oven.

The secret to cooking perfect baked halibut, with a moist flaky interior and crunchy top, is to cook it for a short time on high heat. I baked the fish for 5 minutes, then cranked the heat up to broil and broiled it another 4 to 5 minutes. Just long enough to toast the top.

Halibut is a rich, yet delicate fish. It would be a travesty to overcook it, so make sure to set the timer.

Doesn’t this tender baked halibut look amazing with the golden nutty crust and little bits of basil shining through?

Wait. I think I forgot something…

There we go. It’s even better with another dollop of herby basil butter on top!

The beauty of this Baked Halibut with Basil Butter Recipe is that you can use as much or as little basil butter as you want, to suit your mood or diet. I suggest going with more basil butter, then serving it with a light spring salad to round out the meal. *wink*

A couple weeks ago I was able to share my beloved Almond Crusted Baked Halibut Recipe with a group of friends. I had the opportunity to visit Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Woman and a few other blog buddies out on Ree’s ranch in Oklahoma.

We had a marvelous time sampling each other’s recipes, all made with creamy Land O Lakes ® Spreadable Butter.

We participated in a fun “Toast Bar Challenge” in which we all made a gourmet-style toast recipe using Land O Lakes ® Butter and an assortment of sweet and savory ingredients.

It was amazing to see all the variations come to the table…

At the end of the day we had a lovely happy hour tailgate picnic with wine, snacks, and the new Land O Lakes® European Style Butter slathered on bread and crackers.

This ultra rich and creamy super premium butter can be found in your local grocery store (in the near future) and makes every buttery treat a bit more spectacular!

Serve with lemon caper sauce

This broiled salmon tastes great on its own, with just a few spritzes of lemon juice. But our favorite way to serve it? With Lemon Caper Sauce! This sauce is full of incredible rich, savory and briny flavor: you’ll find it makes any type of baked fish irresistible.

Trust us: capers are some sort of kitchen magic. Capers are a berry of the caper bush that’s native to the Mediterranean. They’re round and dark green gray, about the size of a peppercorn. You’ll find them in Italian and Mediterranean recipes. Capers taste tangy, briny and salty, and add an irresistibly savory flavor to any dish. You can find them in long, thin jars by the condiments and olives in the grocery store.

Creamy-yet-light-fish chowder

I'm not usually a big fan of chowders, as they are often way to heavy for me to feel good about afterwards. This recipe from the peeps at The Kitchn has changed my mind about seafood chowders. It manages to be cozy, filling, and incredibly light. Instead of using dairy to thicken the broth, the recipe uses pureed potatoes to do the job. Chunks of mild white fish and soft veggies speckle the soup, creating an emulsion of flavors and textures that give you one more tasty way to enjoy more fish.
