This recipe turned out great! My husband and 14 month old gobbled it down, and neither one of them is a real fish eater. The fish was very tender and moist. The flavors of the asparagus and the fish worked well together. Will definitely be making again!

I prepared the recipe as directed. The haddock was a bit bland and I didn't care for the asparagus cooked that way. Possibly I would try it again but cook the asparagus separately in the oven just roasted with oil and salt and pepper.

this dish sounds delicious, i wonder how it would taste with a hollandaise sauce instead of cheese sauce.
