Easy & Cheesy Breaded Haddock

Easy & Cheesy Breaded Haddock

This recipe uses the trick of not including any eggs with the breading to get a no-fail, juicy result. Let the simple haddock become a delicious main course for your meal. There's also a twist to the panko!

Ingredients: 2 servings

Slightly salted haddock (or fresh haddock)
2 filets
Sliced cheese
2 slices
*White flour
4 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
*Cold water
4 tablespoons~
as needed
Bonito flakes (or aonori or parsley)
as needed
Frying oil
as needed


1. If using fresh haddock, lightly salt and remove the skin. Cut one filet into 4 sections. Fold each of the 2 slices of each in half to break into 4 slices total. Place on top of the haddock.
2. Combine the * ingredients to make a thick dredging mixture (It should be just a little bit thicker than what you use for tempura). Combine the panko and the bonito flakes (or aonori, or dried parsley).
3. Coat the haddock with plenty of the mayonnaise coating and cover completely with the panko. Deep-fry until golden brown and they're done.
