Healthy haddock that doesn't taste healthy

We all know that baked white fish is a fast and healthy way to get dinner on the table, particular during this annual time of dietary vow renewal.

What isn't always quite so clear is how to prepare that white fish without adding tons of fat and calories or rendering it a tasteless hunk of protein. But it's actually not all that hard.

It's all in how you dress it. For me, that means a flavorful, fresh salsa. For this recipe, I created a pineapple-mint salsa that gets tons of flavor from not only its namesake ingredients, but also cilantro, jalapeņo, onion and garlic. But if pineapple and mint don't work for you, this versatile recipe works great with plenty of alternatives.

Substitute an equal amount of just about any fresh fruit -- diced apples, mangos, orange segments, plums, even grapes would be delicious. And if you don't have time to make fresh salsa? Most jarred salsas are a fast and healthy choice (just read the labels and watch for added sugar).
