Poor Man's Lobster

Another find from my oldie recipes:

Haddock
1 1/2 tsp. vinegar
salt

Boil haddock in water with vinegar and a bit of salt. Cook 15 to 20 minutes if fish is frozen, less if fresh. Drain fish and place under broiler for a few minutes to dry out. Serve with melted butter...

I tried this for dinner tonight and it was delish! The recipe just caught my eye and sounded different enough for me to have a go at it. My DH said if he closed his eyes he would not be able to tell it wasn't actually lobster.

Thanks Carolyn for another winner.

Chris: Did you use frozen haddock? We don't have fresh haddock in KS..so I was wondering how the frozen would work..Glad you liked it..The vinegar must turn the fish into lobster..LOLOL

I did use frozen. Had troube finding some. First went to a butcher in town that always has nice fish, but they said they don't carry haddock and to order some I would have to be 10 lbs. Ended up getting some at Kroger. We just had an ice storm here and as soon as it's safe to go out I want to go and see if they carry it at Sam's Club. I am pretty sure they do. We always get our cod loins there and are very happy with it.

Thanks again for the recipe.

[COLOR=red]I've been trying to remember to look for & buy haddock (has to be frozen here in WY) since I first saw this recipe. I finally bought some this week.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#ff0000]Well, I tried it today. I must say, it tasted NOTHING like lobster to me. Tasted like fish with butter. I'm not terribly fond of fish. The butter did help, and the only way it tasted remotely like lobster was dripping with butter. But it really didn't then either.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#ff0000][/COLOR]
[COLOR=#ff0000]Now I have a bag full of Haddock to eat. I'll continue to cook and eat it this way, as this is better than any other way I could think of to eat it. I'll just remind myself "fish is good for you". I'll eventually eat it all.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#ff0000][/COLOR]
[COLOR=#ff0000]Oh well, it was worth a try.[/COLOR]

Carolyn.........

I forgot about this recipe! What kind of vinegar did you use? Apple Cider or regular? I also have white wine vinegar.

[COLOR=red]That's OK Carolyn. Everyone has different tastes. And mine is diffinetly different from most's![/COLOR]
[COLOR=#ff0000]Who knows next time I try it I may like it better. ??[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#ff0000][/COLOR]
[COLOR=#ff0000]I don't know much about chowders. Really don't think that would be in my taste range either, but maybe. [/COLOR]

Once I got it with skin and that one was more 'fishy' tasting. The ones I get frozen at Kroger are skinless and they do work for us. I am not fond of cooking my own fish, but this to us is great.

[COLOR=red]Thanks Carolyn. Actually, I've eaten fish all my life. I used to like it much MORE than I do now. Over the years I've just gotten to where I don't care much for it. I can eat it, just NOT one of my favorite things.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#ff0000]Thanks for the cooking suggestion. I may try that when I decide to eat it again.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#ff0000][/COLOR]
[COLOR=#ff0000]I thought maybe this "lobster" thing would be a way for me to eat more fish. [/COLOR]
[COLOR=#ff0000][/COLOR]
[COLOR=#ff0000]I got this at Sam's. So it's a pretty big bag. No skin! Matter of fact, they are pretty nice looking filets (Cod loins I belive). OH MY, I just typed that in, and thought, Cod loin? I was after haddock. Sooooo, I went and looked at my package. I bought Cod instead of haddock!!!! Maybe that explains why it didn't "work". Sigh!!!! I do tend to live up to my "name".[/COLOR]

Billie (that's my Mom's name, too),
If you want to use up the frozen fish and you like tuna salad, steam it, no need to thaw..... then chill it and flake it up and make it up just like a simple tuna salad with celery, relish, mayo, etc. Great on top of a salad.

Here's a link to an interesting (because the procedure is a little peculiar) recipe for poor man's lobster; there is a link on that page to other such receipes as well. http://www.recipezaar.com/62592

Carolyn, do you measure the amount of water and salt that you use?

Just to cover the haddock..I use a big frying pan..and just a tiny pinch of salt..

That was an interesting recipe..with the sugar..but maybe we could use Splenda..

From the comments on the recipe, it should have some vinegar for the texture....and the amount of sugar was too much.....

So maybe 2 tablespoons of vinegar (because of the water volume) and 1/2 a cup Splenda.....

I'm gonna try this if I can find Haddock or Halibut.....

I had a recipe a long time ago that called for poaching orange roughy in orange pop, and serving with melted butter. It also said it was supposed to taste like lobster. it was alright but I am also not a fish eater so to me it was just okay, not really like lobster, but other people loved it.

I didn't have the haddock..I had some tilapia for lunch..

I need to get the haddock..I think it has the right texture as lobster..the other fish are too tender to be lobster..

Have you even eaten the imatation crab meat? Well that is made using Haddock. I love the imatation stuff, but it is not quite real crab.

I will try this recipe because I am a lobster freak and a half. Even if it taste remotely good, I will be happy because eating at Red Lobster gets quite expensive.

Thanks Carolyn for all you awesome recipes. I loved the 3 minute flourless chocolate cake.

I just read that you can ALSO cook the fish in 7-UP...I have some diet, and I'm sure it would be fine in that too..

Is the 7Up sweetened with a cookable sweetner? I thought it had equal in it.

Carolyn. Try the same recipe with monk fish. It tastes even more like lobster!

I found frozen Haddock filets today at Wallyworld...in the frozen seafood, individual filets at $1 each....I'm gonna try adding a little splenda, salt and the vinegar to the poaching water....

I hope it works!

I just finished my PML, and it was delicious....It did taste a bit like lobster, and VERY tasty...I'll definitely make it again....The texture was great!

Here's exactly what I did with 6, 4oz Haddock filets.......In a large skillet with a lid, I put 4 cups of water, 3 Tbs Splenda, 1 Tbs salt and 2 Tbs white vinegar. Bring to a boil and then place fish in liquid. Cover and let simmer for 15 minutes. Remove fish from liquid with a slotted spoon and place directly on a broiler pan, or a cooling rack set on a baking sheet. Place under the broiler for about 3-4 minutes, flip, broil about 4 more minutes. This won't brown the fish. It will be nicely dried out.

I broke off forkfuls & dipped in melted lemon butter. YUMMO!

The Splenda sweetens the fish a little and the salt seasons it nicely...

HUGE thanks for this thread & the ideas, Carolyn!
