Best Baked Fish

(originally made 4/2011)

Tim was sick on his birthday this year and it was a big one (40).   So as a belated present we went to an excellent local lobster pound/fish market and treated him to fresh steamed lobster and some nice haddock.    I don't eat seafood, so both were an adventure  :)   I called out to friends to help and got lots of great ideas and in the end, he chose Carol's Best Baked Fish.  

I was extremely nervous about ruining this piece of fish, I know nothing about cooking it other than what I've seen on tv.  Her recipe was simple and foolproof.    Jake even surprised me and ate a good size piece, normally he'll only do the boxed Gorton's or fried stuff at restaurants.    :)    Tim cleaned his plate and wished he'd bought more fish!

The pic is rushed because he wanted to dig right in  LOL 

Thanks so much Carol  :)
