This delicious dish combines juicy baked haddock with plump shrimp and a nice tomato sauce. You can use orange roughy instead of haddock if you want, or any other white fish. Frozen fish is fine to use but you need to make sure it is well thawed, rinsed, and patted dry with paper towels before using it, else it might have a mushy texture after cooking.

The fish is cooked in a mixture of dry white wine, butter and lemon juice to give it lots of flavor and the sauce is made with tomatoes, spices, lemon juice, garlic, and green onions. You can make the sauce ahead and keep it refrigerated for up to five days. This does not change its flavor but, if you want to save time when making this recipe, you can do that.

Serve this baked haddock recipe with boiled rice or potatoes on the side, or even with French fries. Alternatively some crusty French bread would be good for soaking up the delicious tomato sauce and juices. This recipe is tasty enough for a deliciously different family supper and it would also be good to serve at a dinner party because it looks impressive and tastes beautiful.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. 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? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
