This easy haddock and lemon pasta is an easy and quick dish, perfect for weeknights. It is very similar to my easy tuna pasta and just like that one it takes about 15 minutes to make. This dish is light and fresh and full of flavour. I am a huge fan of quick meals, they are perfect after a long day.
Haddock can be found in most stores, and all the other ingredients are things I always have in my fridge. This is what makes this a perfect midweek meal. For the pasta type I recommend sticking to long thin ones, such as spaghetti or linguine.
Lemon and fish are a natural pairing which can never go wrong. The sharpness of the lemon goes really well with the gentle flavour of the haddock.
This easy haddock and lemon pasta can be adjusted to your preference. I love spicy foods so always make sure to add extra chilli flakes to my sauce, however you can leave that out.
Adding some pasta water to the sauce as the starch gives it a creamy texture, so I always do it as I like the result. I do that with most of my oil based sauces.
