Baked Haddock With Lemon Sauce

Yield 4 servings


  • 4 haddock fillets (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 thin slices onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Fresh parsley sprigs
  • Lemon wedges

How to Make It

  1. Place fish in a well-greased 13- x 9- x 2-inch baking pan; pour 3 tablespoons melted butter over fish. Combine water and lemon juice; pour over fish. Place onion on top of fish. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Transfer fish to a serving platter, and keep warm. Reserve pan drippings.

  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add reserved drippings; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Combine yolk and whipping cream; gradually stir into sauce. Stir in salt and pepper. Cook until sauce is thoroughly heated.

  3. Pour sauce over fish on platter. Garnish with parsley sprigs and lemon wedges. Serve immediately.
