I baked it at 350 for 25 minutes until it flaked, instead of microwaving it. Easy and tasty.

I love Haddock because it tastes so much like cod, but I would never put a good piece of fish into the microwave. Instead, we placed the fish in foil, added the seasonings, including onion/garlic powder and lemon pepper. I cut back on the butter and then placed the fish on the grill. With all the food there was at our Fathers Day party, this was the first to go. Thanks for a good start.

I made this as directed, except I made it on a George Foreman grill, and instead of using butter, I used butter flavored cooking spray. Delicious! and very heart healthy!!

This is one of our favorite ways to do Haddock. But Do Not microwave the fish.!! Much better on a foil lined cookie sheet, or 13 x 9 dish in a 350 degree oven for 25 - 30 minutes till fish flakes easily with a fork. I always serve this with macaroni & cheese. Every one in our house likes this recipe from the 2 yr old & up. You can also use this recipe on the grill. Put your fish in tightly wrapped foil and grill.

I can't believe how many of you didn't take advantage of cooking this in the microwave! I will say that I probably wouldn't have cooked it this way if I didn't have a turntable. It really helps in cooking the fish evenly. I used white swai, a spice called, "lemon butter w/ dill" (I got at a spice shop) sprinkled on both sides along w/ a little parm just on top. Then I used three thinly sliced pats of butter evenly spaced on each fillet. Total would be abt. 3 Tbsp. (So 1/2 c. of butter is w-a-y too much!) Cover w/ a plastic cover like you use when microwaving liquids and microwaved for 3 min. Then gently turn over and put the outside edge of the fish inward, keeping the thickest part on the end of the dish and cook another 3 min. Depending on the thickness of your fillets, you might need another couple of min. but that's all! It was flaky and juicy and so flavorful! Plus, it didn't heat up my kitchen while it's 90 outside!

I've always loved and relied upon a similar version of this for a quick and delicious fish dinner (cod, or any mild, white flaky fish can also be used). However, I love a golden brown color so I always give it a a shake of paprika and bake quickly on high heat, about 15-18 minutes at 400 degrees. The lemon pepper seasoning on fish was something new for me and it was interesting to try. It was okay, but for me a little overpowering. I'll stick with the lemon juice, dill, garlic or California garlic salt, paprika, and salt and pepper. This recipe has great potential but unfortunately gets only three stars from me for the microwaving and the lemon pepper, neither of which are positive contributions.

This was so easy and delicious. I didn't have any lemon pepper but it didn't matter. Also, I used fresh cut dill. I did what one of the reviewers suggested and baked it in the oven.

The fish was very tasty. the lemon-buttery taste is great. I baked it at 375 for about 15 minutes instead of putting it in the microwave. The reason I gave it 4 stars and not five is due to the fact that it is messy to serve. This type of fish just tends to fall apart very easily. Next time i'm going to try this sauce on salmon.
