    This was hands down delicious! We loved everything about this dish. I don’t cook a lot of fish at home but that has changed with this recipe. I will be making this for years to come!

    Perfect. Had this with cod, and the ingredients and method were spot-on. We both really enjoyed this, and I'll be making it again for sure.

    Made this dish for dinner last night and it was excellent. Made this a written with the exception of adding some Parmesan cheese to the breadcrumb mixture. It also makes a nice presentation for company. Will be making again.

    I think this recipe is wonderful just the way it is. The bacon didn't taste overwhelming at all. A great blend between onion,bacon,and garlic!

    The only modifications I made to this recipe were to halve the topping ingredients since I only had two haddock fillets.This recipe is absolutely delicious. If you are a true fish lover however, this may not be your favorite - the bacon flavor is stronger than the fish flavor. But who doesn't love a little bacon??!!

    Excellent! Even my son who doesn't like fish said he would eat it again. My store didn't have any haddock, so I replaced it with cod.
