Seared Lemon-Butter Haddock

with Corn, Sweet Pepper & Pepita Salsa

Cooking time

20 minutes




730 /serving

Let lemon and butter take care of business. They’ll bathe pan-seared haddock fillets for an effect that lingers luxuriously on your tongue. Contrast that with a peppy salsa, bright with kernels of corn that you’ll cut from the cobs and briefly sauté. Toss them with cubes of sweet pepper and crunchy pepitas for a tickle of texture. Serve on a fluffy bed of white rice and celebrate the catch of the day.

Cook the rice
In a medium pot, combine the rice, 1 ¼ cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 17 to 20 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Fluff the rice.

Sauté the corn
In a large pan (non-stick if possible), heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Sauté the corn, 3 to 4 min., until softened; season with ½ the spices and S&P. Transfer to a medium bowl. Wipe out and reserve the pan.

Cook & coat the haddock
In the same pan, heat a light drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the haddock* dry with paper towel; season with the remaining spices and S&P. Cook, 2 to 3 min. on one side, until golden brown. Flip and add the lemon slices and 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions). Cook, spooning the butter over, 2 to 3 min., until golden brown and cooked through.
