Mexican Style Haddock

Now, Mexican and Haddock might not be two words you would expect to see in the same sentence but to be honest this is a perfect match. Just make sure you buy a lovely, organic Mexican salsa sauce with lots of vegetables in it (no added white sugar, additives, colourings or flavourings). If you find a nice sauce (try your nearest health food store), I promise this meal will be a real crowd pleaser at your next dinner party.

You will need a large oven proof baking dish for this recipe.

  • 450 grams (15¾ oz) white fish such as haddock, cod or halibut (it's best to buy the fish already scaled and trimmed of bones)

  • 400 millilitres (13½ fluid oz) mild Mexican salsa sauce, including peppers, tomatoes, onions, garlic and more (organic)
  • 1 tomato, sliced fairly thinly
  • Half a pepper (red or orange), sliced thinly
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • Pinch salt (Himalaya or sea salt) and pepper (black)


  1. Grate the 100 grams cheese.
  2. Cut the 450 grams haddock in large pieces.
  3. Place the haddock pieces in a large oven proof baking dish.
  4. Cover the fish with the 400 millilitres salsa sauce.
  5. Slice the tomato and the pepper fairly thinly and arrange on top of the sauce/fish.
  6. Chop the parsley and sprinkle 2 tablespoons over the sauce/fish.
