Seared Haddock

Seared haddock

Quick, easy and oh so good, my seared haddock!

This is a quick and easy seared haddock recipe. As you can see, I served it with my fried lemon rice and my recipe can be found below. The combination  works wonderfully together. 

For eggs, all you need to do is set the temperature to 62c and then place the eggs in the water bath and leave them for an hour. Done!

Anyway, back to the seared haddock, you could just as easily serve it with roast potatoes or no carbs at all. Garam masala seared haddock is nice served with a fresh green salad.

As part of my commitment to use more olive oil in my cooking, I seared the fish in a few tablespoons of Cardiasoil olive oil which was great. You could use other oils too.

The garam masala is easy to make. Those who have been reading my blog for a while will know I have quite a few recipes. To make this garam masala seared haddock, I used my curry powder recipe. Yes, curry powder is just another name for garam masala.

You could also us a good quality store bought brand.
