Last summer, I was obsessed with Barefoot Contessa Haddock Recipes. All of them was super amazing. After a pretty long time, I’m sharing this with you guys because my 7-year-old angle wanted to have herb roasted fish and the only fish recipe she liked was one of the recipes from Barefoot Contessa.
Know about Your Ingredients and Recipe:
Fish Fillet: If you are using a codfish fillet like me, you should know these facts. Phosphorus, niacin, and vitamin B-12 are all found in this fish fillet. Three ounces of cooked cod contain 15 to 20 grams of protein. Here, you will need 8 oz. of fish fillet.
Salt: For seasoning the fillet you will need ½ tsp of kosher salt.
Black pepper: This will also need seasoning. The best result comes if you ground freshly the black pepper using a spice grinder. Here you will need ¼ tsp of black pepper.
Thyme: Fresh thyme provides a nice flavor to this dish. Make sure you finely chop it, about 2 tbsp.
Eggs: Here, you will need eggs for closing the parchment paper. Ger 2 eggs and prepare the egg wash.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Researchers have shown that extra virgin olive oil is more beneficial than other varieties like virgin oil, olive oil, etc. However, in my cooking where health is an issue, I always try to use extra virgin olive oil.
The Vitamin E in extra virgin olive oil can protect the body against eye and skin problems, as well as make hair and skin healthier. Each tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil contains about 1.9 mg of Vitamin E. Use 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil here.
Fresh Lemon Juice: Fresh lemon or lime juice enhances the tanginess of the recipe. Besides, it is full of vitamin C that should be consumed daily even if in a little amount. 1 tbsp of lemon juice will be fine here.
