I get a knock on my door the other day. My landlord is standing there with branches of bay leaves: “I thought you would enjoy these! I’ve been pruning the tree” he said. What a kind and thoughtful guy!
One thing I love about summer cooking is knocking up perfectly simple and quick dishes like this one and the abundance of chilled Sauvignon Blanc, of course!
I had some haddock that Chris picked up earlier that morning and thought I’d pair the two.
Here it is:
- Fresh dried bay leaves
- Haddock fillets
- Fresh garlic
- Olive oil
- Choose some bay leaves and garlic
- Lay out your haddock fillets on a baking pan drizzled with olive oil
- Drizzle the fillets with some more olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, layer with bay leaves, and baked.
- Cook fish about 7 minutes per inch, measuring at the thickest point. Bake at 350F/180C/4G.
