Wild Haddock and Swiss Chard and Grape Tomatoes

The Husband made this delicious and healthy dinner this week. I couldn't get over how healthy and tasty it was so I had to share.

1 lb wild haddock
1 bunch swiss chard, blanched and stems removed
Handful of grape tomatoes
Salt, pepper and extra-virgin olive oil

1. Remove haddock from skin and season liberally with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil.

2. Wrap the haddock in the blanched chard leaves until it resembles a neat bundle.

3. In a oven-safe pan, heat olive oil and sear the bottom of the chard and haddock bundles with grape tomatoes for a few minutes. Add some white wine into the pan and let reduce.

4. Place the entire pan into the pre-heated oven at 350 for 15 minutes until haddock is cooked through.

A delicious and healthy dinner for a stay-at-home date night.


  1. Is Swiss chard bitter at all? what does it taste like?

  2. Not bitter at all. I was initially afraid it would be bitter too. However, we lightly blanched and then wrapped it around the fish and it was REALLY GOOD. You should definitely try it. Even some garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper - lightly sauteed would be good.
