Ingredients

  • Ingredients
  • I tablespoon butter
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 1cm cubes
  • 300ml water
  • 250g smoked haddock
  • 250ml milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley or chives

Method

    1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat, then add onion and fry gently until transparent. Cook for about 5 minutes but do not allow to brown.
    2. Add potatoes and water and bring to boil. Simmer for 10-15 minutes.
    3. Meanwhile in another pan, cover the haddock with the milk and cook gently for about five minutes until just tender. Remove from the milk and, when cool enough to touch, flake gently into large pieces, removing bones.
    4. Add milk and flaked fish to saucepan containing potatoes and other ingredients and cook for a further 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
    5. Serve with crusty bread and butter.

Easy to make and delicious comfort food. This recipe is as good as many I have had in restaurants. I served this with cheesy bread - lovely!

So simple but so yummy! Added a leek to the onions as people had suggested, and used chives and a little lemon juice. Such a nice easy comforting meal! Definitely making this again :)

Excellent recipe for a Scottish favourite, loved it. Try it with a small leek. However its so good that it will not serve 4 it's just enough for two greedy gobs!

One of my all-time favourite soups! A very simple but very effective recipe. I'm married to a Scot, so am trying to combat his homesickness with a daily dish :-) Thanks for sharing. I also added a bit of celery.
