This is a very flavorful baked haddock recipe. The fish is seasoned simply with salt and pepper but a creamy mixture is spread over it before baking. This mixture is made with feta cheese, yogurt, scallions and dill weed, as well as a little garlic. The result is that the sauce soaks into the fish, giving it plenty of mouthwatering flavor whilst keeping it moist and juicy. If you want to make this baked fish recipe with a different kind of fish, that is fine. Choose something mild-flavored so it does not clash with the creamy cheese topping. Hake, tilapia, or cod would be ideal, or use basa fish for a budget alternative.
This easy recipe can be made even simpler by swapping the cooking spray-coated baking dish for an aluminum foil-covered baking sheet. When the fish is ready you can simply throw the aluminum foil away and the tray should be clean. The sauce sticks to the fish and is quite thick anyway so do not worry about it dripping off the tray because it will not. It will stay sticky and perhaps crust along the outside, developing a different flavor and texture.
So what do you fancy serving with this tasty baked fish recipe? Boiled, mashed, or roast potatoes are good, although you might need a second oven for the roast potatoes, since they require a much higher temperature than the fish and a longer cooking time. Try microwaving big potatoes instead until they are fluffy and soft all the way through, then cut them open, and add butter or sour cream. Green beans, peas, or broccoli would also be good alongside this delicious baked haddock.

Look how moist and juicy this meal is. Cooking the fish under a layer of creamy sauce is a wonderful way to lock in the natural moisture and cook the fish to perfection without the fear of it drying out. Although you can choose your own preferred side dishes, using something bright green like beans, peas, broccoli or even asparagus is a nice way to add color to this baked haddock meal. This dish should appeal to kids (who usually love cheesy, creamy sauces) and adults alike, because it offers a beautiful flavor and texture, and the fish is sure to come out of the oven really succulent.
