  1. Heat the butter in a large saucepan. Tip in the bacon, then cook until starting to brown. Add the onion, cook until soft, then pour over the milk and stir through the potatoes. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 mins.

  2. Add the haddock, then leave to gently cook for another 10 mins. By now the fish should have defrosted so you can break it into large chunks. Stir through the sweetcorn, then cook for another few mins until the fish is cooked through and the sweetcorn has defrosted. Scatter over parsley, if using. Serve with plenty of crusty bread.

Loved this! Really easy to make and is a good use of frozen fish. My husband's not a fan of sweetcorn but he still really liked the soup, so it must be good! We had it as a main meal with just a bread roll on the side and it was really satisfying.

Quick and easy, and full of flavour. Fresh smoked haddock and tinned sweetcorn worked just as well. Great served with garlic bread.

This is a delicious soup - in fact we had it as our main meal. I used fresh smoked haddock and unsweetened almond milk as it had to be dairy free.

I used fresh smoked haddock not frozen so only added it at the end. Tasty and quick and my children loved it.

SImple just need to reduce the stock slightly as I prefer it thick. Be careful with your fish stock - some bought stocks are quite salty and this with the bacon could be a bit excessive for some. Very tasty and quick meal.

This was lush! strange it didn't say to add seasoning though (salt and pepper is surely always a must!) Really nice flavours and I did wonder whether some cream would be a cheeky but delicious addition!

Made this yesterday and the whole family really loved it. We did, however, find it a little salty so will be using reduced salt stock next time. Having leftovers for lunch today :)

I found it a bit bland, so I added some vegetable stock. This improved the taste no end. Very hearty meal. Will make again

Not sure why this is classed as 'moderately easy' but maybe that's because I made this in the slow cooker. I sautéed the potatoes, onion, and replaced bacon for prosciutto ham, then put the mix into the slow cooker and followed as per recipe guide. Easy, simple cosy food.

Excellent soup, added a bit of cornflour to thicken...

Great dish! Easily made enough for three and very filling! I added some flour to thicken as advised by others and plenty of seasoning. Delicious! Great autumn dish, will definitely make again.

Really simple, fast and tasty! I used fresh haddock and fish stock (out of veg), but will have frozen smoked haddock in the freezer in the future so I can make this. Makes me wish I was eating it for lunch by the Cornish coast.

i found it a bit bland and the soup too thin so it definately needs flour to thicken it up a bit and give it some depth.

I added some cornflour (corn starch), but other than that, this recipe was perfect. Filling, tasty and enough for three or four.

This is a great store cupboard type recipe, so quick and easy, lovely with some tasty crusty bread

audrie57's picture

sounds very nice, as i don't eat fish or vegetables so would cook for other half and he would love it with some chunky bread from the bakers

Tasty and very easy. A very filling meal by itself and perfect for a cold night. I got three healthy portions out of it too.
