Haddock Bits - How to Make a Party Favorite

Haddock, a versatile fish and in abundance here in Nova Scotia.  This flakey saltwater white fish has many uses and when cooked is mild in flavor. I have been to a few events where one of the finger foods was a fish bite or bit. It was a piece of fish breaded and deep fried. A very nice treat, if done properly.  Unfortunately, as most events where there is 100 people or more, these can turn out to be soggy little balls of fish.  Not seasoned, not crispy and definitely not very fresh.

This got me thinking on how to make these appetizers perfectly. Enjoying the fresh fish, and the crunch a good coating delivers. I wanted something that I could use as a finger food or even a meal.  So combining a few techniques to fry fish and preparing the haddock in proper size pieces I came up with the Haddock Bits.
