Welcome to the Captain's Galley
Here we will have lots of fun in the cooking and
then the eating and that I enjoy the best.
As haddock is a good-sized fish, it is an especially
suitable one for baking. However, it is a dry fish, so fat should be added
to it to improve its flavor.
When haddock is to be baked, select a 4 or 5-pound fish, clean it
thoroughly, boning it if desired, and sprinkle it inside and out with
Fill the cavity with any desired stuffing and sew up.
Place in a dripping pan,
and add some fat or place several slices of high fat meat around it.
Bake in a hot oven for about 1 hour.
After it has been in the oven for about 15 minutes, baste with the fat
that will be found in the bottom of the pan and continue to baste every 10
minutes until the fish is done.
Remove from the pan to a platter, garnish with parsley and slices of meat,
and serve with any desired sauce.
