Iron Rich Haddock Recipe: Steamed Haddock

Wipe two pounds of haddock fillets, sprinkle with salt and pepper and place on a greased cookie sheet or wrap in dampened cooking paper. Put in a steamer and place over hot water and steam for twenty minutes. Remove from the steamer and place on a serving dish, retaining the juice. Garnish with parsley and lemon slices and serve with anchovy sauce.

Anchovy Sauce

This anchovy sauce can be served over fish such as haddock or over vegetables for added minerals and beneficial fats. Melt three tablespoons of butter in a saucepan and add three tablespoons of flour mixed with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and a few grains of pepper. Stir until smooth and then gradually add fish stock or water to make one and one-half cups. Stir until the sauce boils and season with one tablespoon of lemon juice and one teaspoon of anchovy paste and a few grains of cayenne.
