  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to serve
  • 50g chorizo, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 450g salad or new potatoes, sliced (I used Charlotte)

  • 4 tbsp dry sherry, or more if you need it (or use white wine)

  • good handful cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 20g bunch parsley, chopped

  • crusty bread, to serve


  1. Heat a large lidded frying pan, then add the oil. Tip in the chorizo, fry for 2 mins until it starts to release its oils, then tip in the potatoes and some seasoning. Splash over 3 tbsp Sherry, cover the pan tightly, then leave to cook for 10-15 mins until the potatoes are just tender. Move them around the pan a bit halfway through.

  2. Season the fish well. Give the potatoes another stir, add the cherry tomatoes and most of the chopped parsley to the pan, then lay the fish on top. Splash over 1 tbsp Sherry, put the lid on again, then leave to cook for 5 mins, or until the fish has turned white and is flaky when prodded in the middle. Scatter the whole dish with a little more parsley and drizzle with more extra virgin oil. Serve straight away with crusty bread.

Beautiful recipe!!!! I added onions and spinach to it as suggested and everyone loved it, even my 14 month old!!! Will certainly be doing this one again.

Given the growing awareness of the unsustainability of haddock, I really think either coley or pollock should have been promoted by this recipe. Their names might not be as pretty but the fish tastes the same and they at least are not endangered. Otherwise a very nice recipe, thank you.

This was a really tasty recipe, but we decreased the potatoes and added spinach. Think this will become a favourite.

Lovely and tasty. Has become a regular favourite.

I've made this a number of times now and each time we're chuffed with the results. I usually end up putting an extra tablespoon or 2 of water in the pan to ensure that the whole thing doesn't dry out while steaming. Haddock is dead expensive here in amsterdam (don't ask me why) so i've made this with cod, panga and tilapia on different occasions. I give them an extra good seasoning with salt, pepper and 'firestorm' pepper, an Australian pepper concoction that includes mace, cloves, dried chili peppers and more, and it's always turned out fantastic. It's a quick, easy and delicious mid-week meal. :)

This was amazing will definitely be making again, i didnt have the crusty bread but now i have tasted the sauce it is a must for next time

Excellent, reduced potatoes as suggested above and added some chopped red pepper with the tomatoes, went down very well, and very little washing up at the end. Always a bonus!

Great for a quick mid week meal, we had this before going out and wasnt too heavy. I added little lemon tyme rather than parsley as didnt have any to hand, worked well and didnt overpower the fish but cut threw the chorizo and freshened it up a bit. would have again as a midweek meal :)

A really simple and delicious recipe. The chorizo and haddock really compliment each other.

Really simple and effective. Didn't have any new potatoes or sherry or cherry tomatoes so sliced up red desiree and used a few tablespoons of brandy and chopped up some firm plum tomatoes.
The sign of a great recipe I think, when you can improvise around it and still produce a great meal.

Absolutely love this dish! Have made it several times with no desire to tweak it or change it in any way as it's just gorgeous as it is.
Just one thing - never seem to have enough sauce to warrant dipping in any crusty bread but that's not a criticism. A fab quick and easy midweek dish.

Used tinned tomatoes instead of fresh and didn't have any sherry so used vermouth. Added a scattering of sliced red onion on top of the fish before cooking. Served it with carrots and peas. Kids and hubbie both loved it. Success!!

Wonderful; easy to make, and sooooo tasty, just had it tonight but will be making it for my boyfriend's parents on Saturday, serving with carrot batons and green beans. more like this please!

Delicious - although I had to cook the potatoes slightly longer but I did cut them quite thick. Definitely one I'll be cooking again though - very straightforward.

Delicious. We have made it without the chorizo and just add a good teaspoon of smoked paprika to the potatoes when cooking, which has worked well. We use any sort of white fish in this one.

Used snapper and a NZ Riesling. Will try adding spinach next time
