2. Marinate the Haddock Filets:

Place the haddock filets in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag. Pour the lemon yogurt marinade over the fish, making sure each filet is well coated. Seal the bag (if using) or cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 hours. The longer you marinate, the more flavorful the fish will be.

3. Preheat the Oven:

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

4. Prepare the Baking Dish:

Drizzle 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a baking dish large enough to hold the haddock filets in a single layer. Use a pastry brush or your fingers to evenly distribute the oil.

5. Season the Fish:

Remove the marinated haddock filets from the refrigerator. Season them with a bit more salt and pepper, if desired.

6. Bake the Haddock:

Place the haddock filets in the prepared baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork and has a golden-brown crust on top.

7. Garnish and Serve:

Once the haddock filets are done, remove them from the oven. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and lemon wedges for an extra burst of flavor and freshness.

8. Serve and Enjoy:

Plate the Lemon Yogurt Haddock Filet alongside your choice of sides, such as steamed vegetables, rice, or a fresh salad. Drizzle any remaining marinade over the fish for added creaminess and flavor. Serve hot, and enjoy your delicious and healthy meal!

Marc taught himself to cook to have a yummy dinner made for his mother when she returned from a long work day. Limited to what was already in the kitchen, he learned to transform a few (and some unfamiliar!) ingredients into creative masterpieces. He was fortunate to travel around the world with his parents and to live in a household with gourmet chefs, including his mother, grandmother, and aunt. The family rule was that you didn't have to eat it, but you absolutely had to try everything. More recently, Marc’s cooking has been shaped by his wife's need to eat healthy, so he swaps fat for flavorful herbs and spices. Another cooking objective is speed – most of his recipes can be prepared within an hour or less.
