This light and tangy Grilled Haddock (with lemon cream sauce) is a delightful way to savor this fantastic sustainable cod relative! Haddock has a somewhat less solid meat than cod, but it also has a hint of sweetness that pairs beautifully with my white fish lemon cream sauce!!
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 large lemon (sliced)
- 1 lb Fresh Haddock
- 1 teaspoon each, salt & pepper
- 1 teaspoon dill weed (fresh, chopped or dried)
Lemon Cream Sauce For Fish
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- ⅛ medium white onion (finely minced)
- ¼ cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 large lemon (zest and juice – or 2 tablespoons lemon juice)
- 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese (grated)
To Make The Grilled Haddock
- Using paper towels, rinse and gently dry your haddock.
- Place a section of tinfoil on a countertop for each fillet you’ll be eating. On the interior of each foil sheet, lightly coat with brushing olive oil or nonstick frying spray.
- Place 2-3 lemon slices down the center of each packet (depending on the size of your fillets).
- Season each fillet with salt, pepper, and dill weed before placing it on the lemon slices. Wrap each fillet with foil, making sure the seam is facing up and that it is well sealed.
- Place foil packs on a medium-hot grill. Depending on the thickness of your haddock, cook for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the fillets from the fire and check for doneness.
To Make The Lemon Cream Sauce For Fish
- Heat the olive oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the minced onion and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until soft, until the oil begins to shimmer.
- Reduce to a low heat setting and stir in the heavy cream. Once the cream has warmed up, add the butter and continue to simmer until it has completely melted. Cook for another 2 minutes after adding the lemon zest and juice.
- Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese until it has completely melted. Serve your grilled haddock with the lemon cream sauce and enjoy!
Grilled Fish Cooking Times
Cooking time for grilled fish should be 8-10 minutes per inch of thickness (fillets or steak cuts). Turn and grill each side for 3-4 minutes until the fish is done if grilled directly on your grill. Check the fish for doneness at about 8 minutes if using foil packets, as the fish is not only grilling but also steaming inside the foil pouch.
*Be careful when opening foil packets to avoid steam burns!
