Pan-fried Fresh Haddock

I love seafood and every now and then I just like to pull out my cast iron skillet and sear whatever fresh fish I got on sale that week. I especially love haddock quick seared in butter and this new Star Olive oil for fish that I found recently. And of course seasoned with Old Bay because I'm a Maryland girl and it goes on everything that even looks like seafood! You will love this simple recipe with such rich and savory flavors and that flaky moist fish.

Pan-fried Fresh Haddock


1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Fish and Poultry
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 teaspoon dried basil
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
4 Flounder or Haddock fillets (or any white fish fillet)

Make a marinade first by adding the Star olive oil, minced garlic, basil, and the and lemon juice to a Ziploc bag. Then add your fillets and let them sit for about 20 minutes. Remove fillets and shake off liquid.


3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon dried parsley
2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning (or a pinch of cayenne)
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons more olive oil for frying

Mix together the flour, parsley, salt and pepper, and Old Bay seasoning. Dredge the fish in the flour and then shake it off, so that only a very light coating remains.

Heat oil and butter in large skillet over medium high heat until shimmering and starting to smoke. Add fillets and pan-fry in hot oil until golden on both sides and fish flakes easily with a fork.
