Simple Lemon-Pepper and Basil Haddock

One Year Ago:  Jolly Rancher Lollipops

What a week!  I have family visiting from out of town all week and I volunteered for our church's kids' camp at the same time... which was outside in the heat wave!  Between family, work and church, I needed yet another quick and easy meal to throw on the table.  Other than suffering a burn on my fingertip (OUCH!) from the oven, the meal was a hit with everyone. What's the good thing about having a second-degree burn on your fingertip?  Your husband has to do the dishes... always look on the bright side!  I served this with crispy smashed potatoes and spinach. 

  • 1 lb haddock
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil 
  • 1/2 tsp lemon-pepper seasoning  
  • 1/2 tsp paprika 
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with tin foil (for easy cleanup).  Place the haddock on the tin foil.  Dot with butter all over.  Sprinkle the basil, lemon-pepper and paprika evenly over all.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through.  Season with salt and pepper.
