cookwitholiveri: Baked Italian Cod (or Haddock)

This week I was teaching a good friend of mine how easy it is to make fish. I love this dish. It is hearty yet light. I found the recipe for Baked Italian Haddock on epicurious. I am not a huge recipe follower, I tend to add whatever I have. However, when you are teaching someone how to cook it is better to follow the rules than break them (right away at least).

All plated up and looking so delicious

The recipe is really straight forward and easy to follow. If I am cooking for my husband I usually make a pot of pasta too. We plate it with the pasta on the bottom and the sauce and fish on top.
