Nothing says New England like a delicious baked haddock dish. This dish was a favorite at Regina's restaurant which was a neighborhood staple back in the 90's. Customer's were always asking for the recipe so they could recreate it for their own families. Though the restaurant closed many years ago, we still get requests for this scrumptious meal!
