Haddock in Tomato and Basil Sauce

Haddock in Tomato and Basil Sauce

This delicious recipe sourced from the Iodine global network contains 324 mcg of iodine



400g x 1 can tomatoes, canned, whole contents

400g haddock, flesh only, raw

250g aubergine, raw

1 large onions, raw

1 tablespoon oil, olive

1 teaspoon sugar

2 average cloves garlic, raw

4-5 leaves basil, fresh

2 teaspoons paprika



  1. Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan and stir-fry the onion and aubergine. After about 4 minutes the vegetables will start to turn golden but won’t be soft yet, so cover with a lid and let the vegetables steam-fry in their own juices for 6 minutes – this helps them to soften without needing to add any extra oil.


  1. Stir in the paprika, garlic, tomatoes and sugar with ½ teaspoon salt and cook for another 8-10 minutes, stirring, until onion and aubergine are tender.


  1. Scatter in the basil leaves then nestle the fish in the sauce, cover the pan and cook for 6-8 minutes until the fish flakes when tested with a knife and the flesh is firm but still moist. Tear over the rest of the basil and serve with a salad and crusty bread (unless gluten intolerant).
