Lovely - cooked it last night for Valentines! Used a small amount of red onion instead of shallot, and served it over spinach and tomatoes, with the potatoes on the side. Will definately cook again.

I also used just half a shallot. Quite strong tasting but with really good smoked haddock this recipe is a keeper.

I also used half a small red onion, and added a little white wine vinegar to the dressing - and it was delicious. Lovely light summer supper.

I used half a small mild onion in the dressing, and it worked well. A nice lighter way to enjoy smoked haddock.

The picture looked lovely and I was eager to try this one. The dressing though with raw shallots and chives was extremely strong and unpleasant and made the whole dish inedible. Great disappointment and a waste of money.
