Baked Haddock with Lemon Dill Aïoli

Baked Haddock with Lemon Dill Aïoli is easy, delicious and fast. Ready in under an hour fast. Baked haddock is topped with a light topping of dry bread crumbs, butter and spices. The addition of lemon zest and juice adds a light citrus taste. You really don’t need to add the bread topping, we opted for a sprinkling of dried dill weed and lemon zest but feel free to do so. However, the primary flavor comes from the lemony, delicious dill aïoli sauce.
