Grilled Haddock

Grilled Haddock is the perfect meal to serve in the summer time. Actually, it is the perfect meal to serve any time of year! If you live in colder climates in the winter, just make sure your grill is accessible and you can make this yummy dinner year round.

You will love the ease of this dish, not to mention, you will love the delightful taste of haddock, lemon, dill, and just a touch of butter. Simple, yet delicious!

Haddock

Haddock is a saltwater fish that is found in the North Atlantic Ocean. It is a popular white fish which consists of a mild taste just like that of cod. Additionally, haddock has many of the same health benefits as cod. A little trivia for you…young, fresh haddock and cod fillets are often sold as scrod in Boston, Massachusetts. Have you ever heard of Scrod before? Probably not, if you live outside of Boston area! The size of the fish dictates whether it is called Haddock, Cod, or Scrod. Weird, right?

Haddock is a lean protein, making it better for you than red meat. Additionally, there are many other benefits that come along with haddock such as vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin D, and magnesium. These vitamins and minerals improve digestion, level hormones, strengthen bones, promote brain function, and help to prevent cancer, along with many other health benefits.

Dill

Dill which comes from dill weed is a plant in the parsley family. It is boosts digestion and can provide relief with hiccups, diarrhea, menstrual disorders, respiratory disorders, and various types of cancers. Dill is widely used with pickles. And, it just so happens that my favorite potato chips are Lay’s Dill Pickle Flavored Potato Chips. Therefore, I am a huge fan of this combination! Another popular use for dill is to flavor fish with it. It brings a mild tasting fish like haddock to a whole new level of tastiness. Also, it raises up the healthy factor a few notches as well.

If you are looking to grow this amazing herb, you should know that it is an annual herb that is closely related to celery. As such, it tends to replant itself and spreads widely. A low maintenance herb! Ideal for someone who doesn’t want to tend to their garden constantly.

Grill Mats

I recently bought grill mats as Father’s Day gift and just tried them out. I’m obsessed! First of all, your grill stays clean! No more scrubbing grill grates after you finish cooking your meal. No more wasting propane to heat the grill grates for easier cleaning. Just wash the grill mats with soap and water, let them dry (they dry quickly!), and then put them away.

Additionally, you when grilling fish, veggies, or small pieces of meat, you won’t need foil to keep your food from slipping through the grill grates. Just place it directly on the grill mat and cook away! I have the Aoocan Grill Mats, but there are many out there to choose from. If you have tried a grill mat, you know how great they are. If you haven’t tried one yet, do yourself a favor and get one!
