How do I grill haddock?

What is the best way to grill haddock fish, what herbs outdoor.
Submitted by knappscottl

Haddock is related to cod. It is mild in flavor and has a firm texture. Many herbs go well with this mild-flavored fish, such as basil, thyme, dill, rosemary, oregano, and parsley. Lemon always goes nicely with fish. I’ve included a recipe for you below.

Lemon Lover's Rosemary Haddock with Tomato Gratin
Makes: 4 servings
4 ounces fresh artisan bread (we like rosemary-olive), sliced
1/4 cup snipped fresh parsley
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup grated Romano cheese
1/4 cup kosher or sea salt
1 tablespoon snipped fresh rosemary
2 teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 6-ounce haddock or cod fillets, about 3/4 inch thick
8 3/4-inch-thick large tomato slices (4 tomatoes)
3 tablespoons olive oil
  Lemon-Butter Drizzle
1. Tear bread slices into pieces and place in a food processor; cover and pulse until coarse crumbs from. Add parsley and two cloves of the garlic; cover and pulse 2 to 3 times until combined. Add Romano cheese; pulse two to three times until just combined. Transfer mixture to a medium bowl.
2. Combine salt, rosemary, lemon peel, remaining two cloves garlic, and freshly ground black pepper in the processor. Pulse two to three times until combined. Transfer to small bowl.
3. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle both sides of fish with some of the salt mixture, using 1/2 to 1 teaspoon per side.
4. Lightly grease an unheated grill rack with olive oil. For a charcoal grill, grill fish and tomatoes on greased rack of an uncovered grill for 3 1/2 minutes. Turn fish and tomatoes. Mound crumbs mixture atop tomatoes. Grill 3 to 4 minutes more or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Transfer one fish fillet and two tomato slices to each dinner plate.
5. For the Lemon Butter Drizzle, melt 1/4 cup butter in a small saucepan; whisk in 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Sprinkle fish and tomatoes lightly with salt mixture and drizzle with lemon-butter. Place any remaining salt mixture in a jar; cover tightly and refrigerate up to 2 weeks.
