Method

  1. Place the fish in a deep frying pan, then add the milk, stock and thyme. Bring to the boil and take off the heat; leave until cool enough to handle. Take out the fish (reserving the liquid), peel off the skin and flake the fish onto a plate, to use later.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large saucepan. Gently fry the onion, garlic and leek for 8-10 mins until soft and translucent. Add the sweet potato, sweetcorn and lentils, then pour over the liquid you cooked the fish in. Bring to the boil and simmer for 30 mins. Check the seasoning and semi-blitz with a hand blender – I like to leave it quite rough. Add the flaked fish and chopped parsley. Serve piping hot with some crusty bread.

Used 250g of smoked haddock and added chicken stock instead of vegetable and as it had to be dairy free, I used unsweetened soya milk. The result was delicious and looks a lovely colour with the sweet potato. Definitely a recipe to come back to.

This is a lovely recipe and makes an impressive dinner party starter. I used an ordinary potato as my hubby is not keen on sweet potatoes. Simple to make, healthy and very tasty.

I think I used too much sweet potato in this, and as a result it looked very unappetizing once partially blitzed. I would use only ordinary potato in the future (and wouldn't bother with the blitzing). Made it with salmon rather than haddock and it tasted really good - just looked horrid!
