This exciting baked fish recipe features haddock and lobster. The haddock filets are flavored with parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, paprika, and they bake until they are juicy and delicious.

The lobster risotto contains paprika, to echo the flavor in the fish coating, as well as garlic, shallots, green beans and, of course, lobster. You will need a pair of large lobster tails for this recipe. Simply cut the lobster meat into bite-size pieces and add it to the risotto sauce. When the lobster meat is opaque, it is done. Cooked in this way, lobster only takes a couple of minutes.

This simple recipe is made in two parts. The fish is prepared and baked in the oven and the risotto is prepared on the stove. The risotto sauce is made separately so you will need to keep an eye on the risotto rice while you make the sauce; do not let it dry out. You are supposed to stir risotto continually as it cooks but you can let it cook for a few minutes without stirring (while you are busy with the sauce) without making much of a difference to the outcome.

Serves: 6
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 6 haddock filets, 6 oz each
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan
  • ½ cup fine dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ¼ cup milk
  • Watercress or baby salad leaves, for garnish
  • Melted butter, as needed
For the Lobster Risotto:
  • 2 lobster tails, cut into chunks
  • 2 minced shallots
  • 2 cups Arborio rice
  • 4 minced garlic cloves
  • ½ small can corn kernels, drained
  • Small handful green beans
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 large container broth or stock
  • ½ tablespoon ground chipotle chili powder
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ½ stick butter
  • Extra virgin olive oil, as needed
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Grease a 12 x 8 inch baking dish.
  3. Stir the salt and milk together in one bowl and the breadcrumbs, parmesan and paprika in another.
  4. Dip the fish into the milk mixture and then into the breadcrumbs.
  5. Arrange the filets in the prepared baking dish and drizzle some melted butter over them.
  6. Bake for about half an hour, depending on the thickness of the fish. It is ready when it flakes easily.
  7. Make the risotto while the fish is cooking.
  8. Heat ¼ cup of olive oil in a pot over a moderate heat, then sauté half the shallots for 3 minutes.
  9. Add ½ the garlic and stir well. Add the rice and stir until it is evenly coated with oil.
  10. When the rice is golden, turn the heat down, and add the paprika and a cup of broth or stock.
  11. Stir well and add a little salt.
  12. Keep adding the broth, a cup at a time, waiting until the rice has absorbed most of the liquid before each addition.
  13. Stir the risotto all the time, using a wooden spoon.
  14. The risotto will take about half an hour to cook so, 10 minutes before the end, it is time to prepare the risotto sauce.
  15. Add some butter and olive oil to a sauté pan and sauté the remaining shallots for 3 minutes.
  16. Add the rest of the garlic and stir. Add the chipotle and stir.
  17. Add the beans and lobster and let everything cook through.
  18. Stir in the corn kernels and cream and mix well.
  19. Combine the rice mixture with the lobster sauce and season to taste if necessary.
  20. Divide the lobster risotto between 6 serving plates, and top each one with a haddock filet.
  21. Garnish with watercress or baby salad leaves.

Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone?
