Panko-Crusted Oven Fried Haddock

 This panko-crusted baked haddock is a fabulous way to enjoy fish. Haddock fillets are dipped in a savory egg mixture and coated with panko breadcrumbs. While fried haddock (fish and French fries) is fantastic, this cooked version is a great replacement. You'll cut the fat and calories, but you won't sacrifice flavour. If you prefer a thinner coating, apply panko crumbs a few times in a food processor.

Panko-Crusted Oven Fried Haddock

Cooking spray, or oil, for the baking sheet
4 (6-ounce) haddock fillets, defrosted if frozen
Kosher salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
2 large eggs
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 1/2 teaspoons Creole seasoning, or a similar seasoning salt blend
Lemon wedges, for serving
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.

 for Panko-crusted haddock

Preheat the oven to 425 F / 220 C / Gas Mark 7. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray or brush lightly with oil.

Line a pan with foil

Lightly sprinkle the fish fillets all over with salt and pepper. Keep in mind that if your Creole seasoning (or another seasoning blend) is quite salty already, you can skip or reduce the salt in this step. You can always salt at the end if needed.

Fry haddock
Put the flour in a wide, shallow bowl. Combine the panko crumbs and parsley in another wide, shallow bowl. In a third bowl, whisk the eggs with the mayonnaise and Creole seasoning. You will have to whisk for a minute or two to ensure the mayonnaise doesn't leave clumps.

Panko and flour
Dip a fillet in the flour, coating thoroughly.

Dip a fillet
Then dip the fillet in the egg mixture, turning to coat both sides.

Next, roll the fillet in the panko crumb mixture, pressing lightly to help crumbs adhere to the fish. Repeat with the remaining fillets.

Panko-crusted fillets
Arrange the fish in the prepared baking pan. For pieces with a long, thin "tail," tuck the thin parts under the fillet. They should be uniform in thickness so they will cook evenly.

Put haddock on the pan
Bake the fish for about 18 to 22 minutes, or until it is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. The baking time depends on thickness, so adjust for very thin or thick fillets.

Serve with lemon wedges, along with the seafood sauce of your choice. Enjoy.
