  • 375g undyed smoked haddock, skinned and cut into large chunks
  • 3 tbsp crème fraîche
  • 100g baby spinach

Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Heat the butter in a large ovenproof dish over a medium heat. Cook the leek for 4-5 mins, stirring regularly, until just tender. Add the rice and stir for a further 2 mins.

  2. Add the stock and milk, bring to the boil and bubble for 5 mins before sitting the haddock on top. Cover with a lid or foil and bake in the oven for 18 mins until the rice is tender.

  3. Fold in the crème fraîche and spinach, season with plenty of black pepper, then cover the pan again and leave to rest out of the oven for 3 mins before serving – the steam will soften the spinach.

This is a GORGEOUS recipe which is really quick and easy to cook! my family including my 3yr old and 6 yr old loved it and it will definately become a regular meal in our house. I used vegetable stock instead of fish stock and I didn't have any Creme fraiche so used some double cream instead and I also added peas and sweetcorn to get more veg into the kids.

This is the most delicious risotto I have ever made. And so easy to make. It will definitely become a staple meal in our house. I used peas instead of spinach. Absolutely lovely.

Good, straightforward recipe with delicious result! I also added a bit of white wine and tarragon. Didn't have any spinach, but added green beans that I had microwaved briefly

Made this last night and it was fab. used half fat crème fraiche and semi skimmed milk. Every body in the family liked it. Even my 4 year old who is going through a fussy phase :)

Really enjoyed this, was a bit dubious as I've made risottos in the oven before and they haven't turned out very nice, but this was delicious. Used semi-skimmed milk as that's what we had and also added peas for the last 5 mins as I find they add little bursts of freshness to anything. Served it with a salad and a couple of slice of garlic bread.
