Health Benefits of Haddock
Haddock is low in fat, low in calories, and high in protein, and a tasty alternative to cod. From a health perspective, this white fish is a great choice.
We all know that fish is a source of Omega-3 fatty acids which help support heart health, but haddock is at the lower scale for this.
However, haddock has notable mineral levels including phosphorus which builds healthy bones and teeth, and selenium which is is an antioxidant mineral that helps combat free radicals. As well as being rich in several B vitamins including niacin, or B3, and vitamins B6 and B12.
Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe
For your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients and equipment needed for this recipe have been listed below and linked to Amazon or other stores if available online. The full list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog! I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. You can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).
