Can you believe Christmas will be here in 2 days!? My mom and I spent all day yesterday picking up last minute gifts and way to much time in the grocery store buying food for Christmas Eve. Our Christmas Eve is full of laughter, food and being merry. We celebrate the Feast of the Seven Fishes while blending in an English traditional celebration from my mom’s side of the family. I cook all the fishes and my mom prepares puddings, ham, turkey and the desserts. Last week I shared our salmon recipe that we will be preparing Christmas Eve and today, I thought I would share our easy haddock recipe. I cook between 7 and 9 fish dishes Christmas eve and the haddock and salmon are the two easy recipes out of the bunch. You can eat haddock year round and we prepare it this way all through the year. You’ll see why in a minute :).

Add the olive oil, butter and garlic to the saucepan and cook on low for about 5 minutes then add the onions and and saute on low/medium heat for about 10 minutes.
Next add sliced black olives and white wine.
Add diced tomatoes and bring to a boil.
Our Easy Haddock Recipe
Once the sauce comes to a boil, add the haddock. You can substitute with cod as well.
Sprinkle with salt, pepper and parsley. Cover and let boil for 3-5 minutes then simmer for 15 minutes or until fish is cooked. Fish will be done when it breaks off with a fork and is flakey. You will notice the fish start to break apart as it cooks.
That’s it! Serve over rice or angle hair pasta.
This haddock recipe is one of our favorite dishes on Christmas eve. It’s very light and tastes delicious. The best part, it’s really easy to cook and it doesn’t take up space in the oven. Many of our dishes are prepared in the oven and then need to be kept in a warmer while the others are prepared. I welcome any stove top fish recipes!
