If you saw this recipe earlier in the week, then you might have noticed our delicious Baked Haddock with Cashew Cracker Crust served alongside it!
My husband Jack came up with this wonderful recipe for Baked Haddock with Cashew Cracker Crust last week. I was traveling for a few days, so Jack was looking for something quick and easy to make for dinner.
Jack had some toasted cashews on hand, so he coarsely chopped them up – then combined the nuts with some crushed Ritz crackers. Somewhat inspired by this recipe, Jack then coated a filet of haddock with some mayonnaise – and sprinkled the cashew-cracker mixture over the top.
After a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and some freshly ground black pepper, the haddock was baked in the oven for about fifteen minutes – and dinner was ready!
As soon as I returned home from my trip, Jack started raving about how moist and tender his Baked Haddock with Cashew Cracker Crust came out. So I asked him, “Is it blog-worthy?” – the question we always ask ourselves when we make a new recipe at home, and want to decide if it’s delicious enough to share here on A Family Feast.
Jack made this for me over the weekend – and I’m happy to agree – it is definitely blog-worthy! We hope you enjoy it too.
P.S. That Garden Tomato Compote is perfect served alongside this Baked Haddock with Cashew Cracker Crust!
