Cornflake Coated Crispy Haddock

Cornflake Coated Crispy Haddock is simply haddock fillets that are dipped in seasoned Russian salad dressing and then rolled in crushed cornflakes cereal. Drizzling the coated fillets with melted butter before baking makes this haddock wonderfully delicious! If you aren’t a fan of haddock or fish in general, you can substitute boneless, skinless chicken breasts. This recipe turns out fantastic every time we make it.

Serve With

We like to serve crispy haddock with a side of coleslaw and homemade baked beans. In my house we can’t eat a piece of fish, no matter which way we prepare it, without a side of coleslaw and baked beans. Right before serving, you can squeeze fresh lemon juice over your crispy haddock and then serve with tarter sauce. Nothing fancy here, just a good old fashioned fish dinner.
