New England Style Baked Fish

 Even though my younger two boys wont eat fish I tend to prepare some sort of seafood weekly. One of our favorites is a traditional New England style of baking up white fish (Haddock, Cod, or even Tilapia work well for this dish). 

The fish is prepared with a seasoned Ritz cracker topping an baked in the oven until the fish is nice and flaky and the Ritz crackers are crispy. 


3 lbs. Fish of your choice

Lemon wedge or lemon juice-- Just enough to spritz the fish (I used a teaspoon lemon juice)

Salt and pepper; to taste

1 full sleeve Ritz crackers, crushed into crumbs

4 Tablespoons melted butter (I used Brummel & Brown yogurt spread and I tend to like my crumbs on the dry side; you can absolutely use more butter as most restaurants do)

1/2 Tablespoon Parsley flakes (though Italian seasoning works well too!)

First I sprayed my 13x9 pan with non-stick cooking spray and laid out the haddock filets.  Then I drizzled them with just a bit of lemon juice.

I sprinkled on some salt and pepper. 

Next I combined the melted butter, Ritz crackers, and parsley. 

I spread the topping over my fish in a light layer.  

Then popped the fish in a preheated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes checking to make sure the fish was flaky, white, and cooked through. 

Then I served it up nice and hot! Yum.
